Opening Academic Year

Classes have started and our representatives of Lijst VUUR have also started their one-year term in the faculty and University Councils.


Monday September 3rd the academic year was joyfully opened. During this festivity there was special attention for the increasing work pressure in the academic community. Professors and students pinned a red square on their uniforms to protest insufficient government funding. The University Council joined this effort unanimously.

For the time being, we will oversee that students interests are safeguarded during the distribution of the scarce resources we do have.

Also, if you have any comment or suggestion about your study: feel free to contact us!
