Pharmaceutical Students Association, Uppsala
The Pharmaceutical Students Association (in Swedish Farmacevtiska Studentkåren, nicknamed "Farmis") is one of four students' unions at Uppsala University. While all other students of the university are members of the Uppsala Student Union, students at the Faculty of Pharmacy are organized in the Pharmaceutical Students Association.
The Association was founded in 1896 at what was then the Institute of Pharmacy in Stockholm. When the institute was moved and became part of the University of Uppsala in the 1960s, the students were allowed to retain their own student union.
Up until June 2010 membership was compulsory for students enrolled at the Faculty of Pharmacy, and like other students at Uppsala University, those at the Pharmaceutical Faculty can also be members of one of the traditional thirteen nations.
