Faculty associations

Last updated on 22 September 2021

Do you enjoy being active in a study association? You're more than welcome!

A study association or faculty association is, as the name implies, an association for students of the same study or faculty. The emphasis is usually on fun and relaxation. In addition, most study and faculty associations organize substantive activities for students of their own study and / or faculty. You can often get a discount on study books through a study association.
