Registering for events is possible when they are ‘upcoming’.
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 for Extensus on the day, you even get a free dinner!
Extensus Study Trip
The study trip is the best opportunity to get to know your fellow Extensus members in a different environment. Even as a new member, it is a great way to meet new people. During the trip 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!
In recent years we found that 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 interdisciplinary topics they are passionate about. Extensus members will enlighten each other through a combination of their academic background and research interest. More info will follow soon.
New Year’s Gala
The New Year’s Gala is the best way to celebrate the new year with your fellow Extensus members. More info regarding theme, date and place, will be provided in the event, as this differs per year. The Gala Committee thinks of a festive theme, which makes the gala an unforgettable night!
The Career Dinner 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 and talk with inspiring people who are already ahead in their careers. Representatives from various corporations will be present. Participating corporations will get to see the CVs of our participative members to ensure that the right students will sit with the right corporations.
During the year we are pleased to host several masterclasses. To boarden your horizon even more than the classes you already follow, we invite our members to join a masterclass when special guest speakers are invited to give a lecture in an Honours course. As an Extensus member, you will not miss out on these interdisciplinary lectures from international professors. And we may even host drinks afterwards!
Extensus will organize a day for all honours students and existing Extensus members to reunite. The committee will organize a nice day with activities in the heart of Amsterdam. What activities we will have organized, will be a secret, but it will be the perfect opportunity to meet others. A dinner will also be included for Extensus members, followed by some drinks. You will meet new people in a fun and non-academic way, get to know Extensus and might choose to become an active member!
The final event of the year is the Graduation Event. This 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 several 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.
External Events and inhouse days
External events are organized by Extensus partners. As an Extensus member, you will be invited to join these events and experience how interesting and educational the professional events are. Mostly, these external events are held as Inhouse Days during which a company invites our members to take a look inside the company followed by a workshop or a case related to the company.
