Below you’ll find a video, in which some activities are announced.

Volunteers wanted!

Saturday May 19th is the Parent Day and we need volunteers!

As a volunteer you can accompany a group of parents to discover your study. This means that you give a tour and that you bring the group to the right locations in pairs. Isn’t this appealing to you? Then you can also help with practical lessons on the Parent Day. In that case, you inform different groups of parents and support the practical lesson.

You may also indicate if you prefer to accompany a group with your own parents or would like to team up with a fellow student.

As a reward for your help you get a free lunch, a drink in the “Tegenstelling” and a small gift.

So sign up by sending an e-mail to ln.su1524233559niryg1524233559@eicg1524233559adred1524233559uo1524233559. We look forward to seeing you on the Parents Day!

P.S.: Do not forget to also let your parents sign up via gyrinus.nl/ouderdag/

Workshop Carrièremogelijkheden (Dutch)

– This workshop will be given in Dutch – 

Studeren. Je bent er druk zat mee. Maar naast het studeren moet je ook keuzes maken in wat je erna wilt gaan doen. Ga je werken? In de academische wereld of bij een bedrijf? Ga je reizen? Waarheen en hoe lang? Kortom, allemaal keuzes die je tijdens het studeren moet maken, die invloed hebben op wat je na je studie gaat doen.

In samenwerking met het CMS (Clinical Medical Staffing) organiseert de Onderwijscie een Nederlandstalige workshop. Hierbij zal Josée Marsille op 21 maart van 16:00 tot 17:00 een workshop geven over carrièremogelijkheden in de bio(medische) industrie. Want wat zijn eigenlijk je mogelijkheden na het afstuderen? Kom je in het lab terecht? Moet je een PhD gaan doen? Er zijn nog zoveel meer mogelijkheden om je carrière mee te vervolgen. Ontdek wat er allemaal nog meer kan in onze workshop!

Het is zowel voor bachelor- als voor masterstudenten aan te raden om deze workshop te volgen. Hoe eerder je over dit soort keuzes nadenkt, hoe beter!
