New Year’s Gala
The annual New Year’s Gala is the best way to celebrate the new year with your fellow Extensus members. The Gala Committee is our most festive committee! Every year they think of an amazing theme and make the New Year’s Gala an unforgettable night!
The Study Trip is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow Extensus members in a different environment. We will explore a different city every year, visit the local university and have a lot of fun. The weekend is always filled with a good balance of cultural, social and educational activities. Come along with us!
The interdisciplinary enthusiasm of Extensus members combines well with the concept of TED talks. Textensus is an evening filled with talks by Extensus members about topics they are passionate about.

More Extensus Events
During the year, Extensus will host several get-togethers. We will come together for some drinks or an activity so we, as the board, can get to know our members and our members to get to know each other. Upcoming get-togethers will be anounced on the website, Facebook and in the newsletters so stay tuned!
Extensus Meets Its Freshmen
During ‘Extensus Meets its Freshmen’, you will get the opportunity to get to know your fellow honours students outside the classroom during a day of different fun activities in Amsterdam. Afterwards, other Extensus members will join us for some drinks, giving you the chance to get to know them as well. If you sign up to become a member of Extensus, you even get a free dinner!
The professional highlight of Extensus is the Career Dinner which takes place annually and allows students to dine with their future employers. This all takes place in an informal atmosphere, which makes it a great place to expand your network. Representatives from various corporations will be present.
During the year Extensus hosts several masterclasses. We invite our members to join a masterclass when special guest speakers are invited to give a lecture in an Honours course to broaden your horizon. As an Extensus member, you will not miss out on these interdisciplinary lectures from international professors. And we may even host drinks afterwards!
The Graduation Event is open to all students of the Honours Programme that finished both their bachelor and Honours Programme. The ceremony, held at the auditorium of the UvA, includes musical performances, speeches and will be concluded when everyone receives a graduation cap that will be traditionally thrown into the air. After the ceremony, it’s time to congratulate each other at the borrel.
Active Member Day
At the end of the year, Extensus organizes a day for all members who have taken part in a committee. We will organize a fun activity, we will have dinner together and there will be drinks. What the day is going to look like exactly will be a secret. On this day we, as the board, get the chance to thank you for your hard work.
External events are organized by Extensus’ partners. As an Extensus member, you will be invited to join these events, which are both interesting and educational. An example of an external event is an Inhouse Day during which a company invites our members to take a look inside the company. This is then followed by a workshop or a case related to the company.
