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!

Last year due to covid we ran a series of online events but usually our events are interactive and involve hands-on activities led by students from different disciplines across RGU and Aberdeen University. Each event is attended by around 100 - 150 students giving a great opportunity to mix with other healthcare students. We also raise money for a local Aberdeen charity Charlie's House at our social events.
With lockdown having many people lose their minds at the thought of being stuck inside, I and others are taking advantage of all this free time. We are using this opportunity to sit down and play a few hours of the “world’s greatest role-playing game”, Dungeons and Dragons.
Covid-19 has had a major impact on the fashion industry. With many fashion retailers having to temporarily close their doors, resulting in staff either being furloughed by the government or losing their jobs. Whilst, some local fashion retailers and well-known fashion stores had to shut their doors permanently as they were not hitting the set income sales target for each of their individual retail stores.
