The IPE society is a pioneering, award-winning, inter-university society across Aberdeen & Robert Gordon Universities. We have been the largest academic society the past few years. Interprofessional education is a key outcome emphasised by all regulators of healthcare professions. The IPE society promotes interprofessional learning by facilitating opportunities for health care students to come together in a team based and practical setting. All events are student lead and structured to address a specific topic with students from each health care profession leading workshops to explore their profession's role within the scenario.
So whether you want to learn from your peers and other healthcare, social and science students or jump into the deep end and teach at our events. We are the society for you!

Consumer regulator Ofgem has announced that the price cap on energy will increase on 1 April 2021 due to rising wholesale costs and growth in demand.
This means that a typical household on a default energy tariff could expect a bill increase of £96 per year.
This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).
The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
