About U.P.S.V. “Unitas Pharmaceuticorum”

U.P.S.V. “Unitas Pharmaceuticorum” (abbreviated U.P.) is the study association in Utrecht for Pharmacy and College of Pharmaceutical Sciences students. U.P. organises both educational and social events. These contain (but are not limited to) scientific symposia and excursions, sport activities, parties, balls, and “borrels” (events at which members can meet in a bar to talk and have drinks).

As a member of U.P., you will have access to all of these events. Furthermore, you will receive a discount on your study books, with which you already cover your membership costs of 15 euros per year. So becoming a member of U.P. is not only fun and informative, but also financially profitable!

As upcoming study year will be heavily influenced by the regulations following COVID-19, we elaborated below on how we will go about the introduction time for new College of Pharmaceutical Sciences students. With this alternative approach, we will introduce you to your fellow students and to U.P. as good as possible. At the bottom of the page you will find a button to sign up and become a member of U.P. If you have any questions left, you can send an email to bestuur@upsv.nl. So, what are you waiting for?

The Introduction Week

The Introduction Week will be held from Monday, August 31 to Friday, September 4, 2020. It is a compulsory part of the Bachelor of Pharmacy and CPS. Normally, the Introduction Camp takes place during the Introduction Week. Due to the measures surrounding COVID-19, the Introduction Camp will not take place this year. The Introduction Committee is working hard to create a nice, alternative Introduction Week. The activities have been adjusted and are being held online. This includes activities such as a pub quiz, a CSI lab session and a symposium. The aim of Introduction Week for the freshmen is to get acquainted with the study Pharmacy or CPS, peers, workgroup, tutor and mentor couple. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the study association U.P.S.V. “Unitas Pharmaceuticorum” (U.P.) and the Dutch pharmaceutical study association “Koninklijke Nederlandse Pharmaceutische Studenten Vereniging” (K.N.P.S.V.). During the summer holidays everyone will receive a booklet with all practical and detailed information about the introduction week.
