Dear new Master students,

To guarantee an amazing start of your master program at the Faculty of Science at the VU University, the master introduction committee of the faculty association Gyrinus Natans has organized two introduction days for you. These will take place on Thursday the 27th and Friday the 28th of August 2020 and will be filled with multiple online and physical activities!


Who are we?

We are Britt, Iris, Laura, Sophie, Wouter and Derk-Jan and we are enthusiastic (upcoming) master students, who are willing to give you an opportunity to get to know each other and the VU, even in these strange times.


How do I sign up?

The form for signing up will be online as soon as possible. If you already know you cannot participate in all parts of the program, please let us know upfront by mailing to mastermentoren@gyrinus.nl.



The costs of the whole program will be very low. Unfortunately, due to reservations being slower due to the Corona crisis, we can’t give you an exact number. After you have signed up, you will receive an email regarding payment and you will receive updates on the program. Participation is only guaranteed after paying the fee.



Unfortunately, during the strange times, our program might be subject to small changes. However, we already know that Thursday the 27th will include only online activities and that Friday the 28th will include physical activities in Het Amsterdamse Bos (close to the VU).

The online part on Thursday the 27th will include: an Escape Room, a Pub Quiz, a facultative part organized by the Faculty of Science and small speeches by the Chairman of Gyrinus Natans and a master student sharing her experiences.

The physical part on Friday the 28th will include a Barbecue, a Silent Disco, a small lecture by one of our most beloved professors and last but not least a canoe activity.


For more information and/or questions, you can contact us at mastermentoren@gyrinus.nl.


Kind regards,

The Master introduction committee

Britt Blanken, Laura Ligthart, Wouter de Jonge, Sophie Pulles, Iris Kruijff and Derk-Jan Post
