- Committee meetings will be held online.

- Activities will take place online. 

- There will be no physical lunch lectures .

- If you happen to visit the University buildings, keep 1.5m distance where possible.

 

The already existing measures that will still hold, include:

We understand that these new measures are difficult. We appreciate your flexibility, and we all have to stay positive to make the best out of it. 

The introduction of these new measures also results in the GMA being moved to an online platform. Keep an eye on the website and your email for more information on that.

 

Kind regards and stay safe,

Flowers from the Education committee Placed on 3 December 2021

As of September 1st, Anton Stoorvogel is the new programme director of Applied Mathematics. To congratulate him with his new position, the Education committee decided  to give him a bouquet of flowers.

As programme director, Anton will be the one in charge of the organisation of our beloved study programme. This can sometimes be a hard task, but we have confidence in the capabilities of Anton. He will be involved in developing a new curriculum for the bachelor programme.  This is a challenge that involves a lot of attention and can impact the study programme, and by extension also the study association. We hope that as the study association for AM we can have pleasant collaborations with Anton as Programme Director.

With these flowers, the Education committee wants to show our appreciation for Anton's work so far as new programme director and wish him the best of luck in the coming years, in which he will occupy the position.
