Participation in the Student Exchange Programme also allows students to learn from their counterparts in other countries, empowering them to contribute towards the development of the own countries. The International Pharmaceutical Students Federation (IPSF) was founded in 1949 with the statutory of studying and promoting the interests of pharmaceutical students and to encourage international cooperation among them.
