Who we are?

Kingston University Pharmacy Students Association (KUPSA) is an exclusive society for pharmacy students at Kingston University. We aim to integrate and develop all pharmacy students as they progress through the MPharm course. KUPSA plans and runs sessions which will allow future pharmacists to mingle and socialise in a fun and educational environment outside of the lecture hall.

What we do?

We are an empowering and interlocked committee that run several academic and non academic sessions. We are growing bigger and better than ever before and welcome any ideas from the basics of running support sessions or movie nights to our flagship event, the extravagant pharmacy ball.

We not only provide a CV building opportunity but also boost personal development especially through socialising with other year groups.

A brief annual forecast:

  • Supportive academic sessions will run such as OSCE and APC preparation
  • The Big Fat Quiz- an informal style of reinforcing knowledge, organised by students, so double the fun!
  • Social events to encourage integration which can be anything from a Christmas dinner to KUPSA sports day!
  • And finally the pharmacy ball taking place at the end of every year where any KUPSA member is welcome!

Our new “Prescription”, i.e newsletter, will make sure you do not miss out on any of the fun that you will want to be a part of this year

Become a member today!
