History and Awards

pharmacy-building-entrance-200x300.jpg

The first documented pharmacy student society at the University of Sydney was formed in the 1920 and was officially named The Sydney University Pharmacy Association (SUPA) in 1943, with the late Les Cashen AM as President. We proudly provide services, advice, representation and organise social events for our 800 plus subscribed members and 1300 plus pharmacy students.

 

SUPA is amongst the largest societies on campus and has been successful in winning University of Sydney Union awards, including the Club/Society of the Year Award, Publications Award, Most Improved Audit award and Best Audit award. SUPA prides itself on providing high quality representation and services to benefit the social and academic lives of students. 

 

SUPA supports its members throughout their academic career through core programs such as:

  • Educational events to help provide pharmacy students with a more well rounded education.

  • The provision of text books and equipment essential for the completion of the academic course.

  • Sporting events, through interfaculty sports and charity matches.

  • Social events for students to network and meet fellow student pharmacists

  • Acting as the contact point between pharmacy, pharmaceutical and health organisations and bodies and the pharmacy students. 

 

SUPA will continue to provide into the future, with the assistance of sponsors, services to encourage the commitment, competence and confidence of pharmacy students within the University of Sydney.

Providing Pharmacy Students with opportunity

SUPA organises over 12 social events annually including pub crawls, barbeques, trivia nights, cruises, the annual ball and more:
