Welcome to Uppsala and the Pharmaceutical Student Union!
As pharmacy student at Uppsala University, you have the opportunity to become a member of the Pharmaceutical Student Union, also known as Farmis. Farmis was founded in 1896, Since then, we have monitored students ' interests and created a great community among all pharmacy students.
The Pharmaceutical Student Union's daily operations are run by your prospective classmates in our Student Union house Pharmen. At Pharmen you will find, among other things read sites, computers, a room for playing pool, sauna, café and a pub that's open every Wednesday. Below is a sample of the activities we have to offer.
To help you familiarize yourself with the city, studies and your classmates, the Union's welcome committee, Amöberiet, will arrange activities such as Swedish fika, dinners and celebrations during your first three weeks of study.
As a Student Union, our main purpose is to conduct study coverage which we do for the students at the Faculty of Pharmacy. The student council exists to represent students' interests and strengthen your voice within educational- and study social issues. All students are invited to discuss their education and get information about what is going on within the University.
The Sports committee
The sports committee (IdrU) organizes sports events where everyone is welcome to train with pharmaceutical studens from all semesters and programmes. IdrU arrange soccer- and floorball exercises and different tournaments, among other things, the Swedish sport called "Brännboll".
The Mentor academy consists of pharmacists that have studied at Uppsala University. Each semester they arrange theme evenings where you get the chance to learn more about what you can do after your degree.
Klubbverket organizes the Union's parties including two of the year's big Pharmen parties: The Garden party and Christmas gasque. They also run our café and pub. No experiences are needed to join, we learn from each other!
The International committe
IU manages the Union's international contacts. Through them you can go to international conferences where you will meet pharmaceutical students from around the world!
Every year, the Pharmaceutical Student Union organizes Pharmada which is the largest career fair for pharmaceutical students. Pharmada offers you the chance to meet with prospective employers, perhaps to examine the possibility of getting a summer job in the pharmaceutical business.
The Union's own magazine. Reptilen is published three times per semester. Here you can read about current events in the Union and the student world. Anyone who likes to write and photograph are invited to join the editorial team.
When you arrive to Uppsala you will get information about the Union and Nations and how you can become a member. If you want to take part of the nation's life even before the semester starts, you can turn to any of the Nations in order to enroll in the nation and in the Pharmaceutical Student Union. Membership of the Pharmaceutical Student Union is voluntary, likewise in the Nations. However, we recommend all students to join both the Union and a Nation.
Information on the various Nations enrollment times can be found on the respective Nation website, easily accessible via www.nationsguiden.se
