By becoming a member of the study association VOS you can get to know your fellow classmates and professors during our activities. You will also get a member discount when purchasing your books every half a year. The year traditionally starts with a member weekend and ends with a study trip to an always surprising foreign country.

Who are we?

We are VOS, the study association of Linguistics and Sign Linguistics at the University of Amsterdam. We organise biweekly get-togethers where we play games and have fun (here’s a word to add to your Dutch vocab: borrel). Every year, we go on a study trip where we try to get in touch with Linguistics students from universities in other countries. Last year and this year, we planned on going to Malta, but unfortunately these both had to be cancelled due to COVID. Hopefully we will be able to make up for that next year. We also organise other fun activities, such as ice skating, a trip to the Efteling, movie nights, and much, much more.

If you are interested in pairing up with a second or third year student through a buddy system to be able to have all your questions answered over the summer or during the academic year, message us via Facebook or send us an e-mail!

We also organise study related events, such as interesting lectures and study sessions. And last but not least: through VOS, you can get a considerable discount on your study books at Athenaeum bookstore.

To become a member, please fill in the subscription form. There is a link to this at the bottom and top of this page!

You can be a VOS-member for only € 10,- per year or € 17.50 for two years. A membership is mandatory to be able to go on the study trip, the member weekend (TWeekend), and to qualify for the book sales. Members will also get a discount on activities with an entrance fee. So your investment is definitely worth it, especially since it’s also an investment in VOS and your fellow students. The bigger VOS is, the more we can do for you!
