Amsterdam Psychedelic Research Association (APRA)
20
Followers
APRA is an interdisciplinary, academic association for researchers and university students based in Amsterdam, focusing on substances and practices that show promise for therapy and scientific value, but that suffer an impaired research development because of their legal status or psychoactive effects. Most notably, this definition includes classical psychedelics (e.g. LSD, psilocybin), cannabis and MDMA. In practice, we aim to: - Provide information to students and researchers about developments in academic research on psychedelics through lectures, journal clubs, seminars. - Diminish unscientific stigma within academia and help normalize the status of education and research in this field. - Promote the start of a concerted, interdisciplinary research effort in this direction within the Amsterdam institutions. APRA does not encourage illegal drug use outside controlled research and medical contexts, and promotes all available harm-reduction strategies.

Daarnaast kunnen ze makkelijker aan een kamer, stage en (bij)banen komen en wie wil, kan ook de eigen interesses ontplooien door als bestuurslid ervaring op te doen.

FSR FGW - Humanities

Followers
All students of the Faculty of Humanities are represented by the Faculty Student Council (FSR). The FSR is included in relevant decisions by the Faculty Board and the establishment of (faculty) regulations, where the FSR’s task is to take account of the students’ needs. Every six weeks, the FSR convenes with the Faculty Board and the participation body of the employees of the faculty. In this joint assembly, the FSR has the right to give advice, the right to initiative and/or the right of consent. By means of these rights, the FSR has the ability to prevent decisions that would impact students negatively, as well as bring problems to the fore that require the Faculty Board’s attention. The most important document the FSR has a say in is the Teaching and Examination Regulation (OER), in which the rights and duties of both the student and the faculty regarding teaching and examination are listed. Next to being the student participation body, the FSR is, most importantly, the contact point for all Humanities students (Bachelor and Master). Students are always welcome to approach the FSR with questions, suggestions or complaints. The more students come to the FSR with problems or questions, the better the council can represent them and tackle those problems. The FSR is a democratically elected participation body and the councillors are always elected by the students of the faculty at the end of every academic year.

Favervuta

Bij de start van een studie, gaat er een nieuwe wereld voor je open. Eigen verantwoordelijkheid, een andere vorm van studeren en wellicht een nieuwe leefomgeving. De studie tandheelkunde en mondzorgkunde zijn daarbij vrij bijzondere studies: de combinatie van theorie (wetenschap) en praktijk vragen veel van een student, gedurende 6 jaar (tandheelkunde) of 4 jaar (mondzorgkunde) lang. De studies bevatten veel contacturen met je medestudent en andere mensen rondom de studie. Deze mensen zullen in je nabije toekomst dan ook een belangrijke rol gaan spelen. Gedurende de studie zul je ook merken dat wanneer je in aanraking komt met patiënten, je zogenaamde "social skills" nodig hebt. Die kun je niet leren uit een boek, maar gelukkig wel ontwikkelen. Om al deze nieuwe ervaringen een plek te geven, je 'social skills' te praktiseren en om je te begeleiden naast je studie is op 6 mei 1969 de tandheelkundige studievereniging Favervuta opgericht. Deze studievereniging waarborgt de gezelligheid voor menig tandheelkunde en mondzorgkunde student, studerend aan het Academisch Centrum Tandheelkunde Amsterdam, ofwel ACTA. Al decennia lang organiseren leden van deze gezellige vereniging activiteiten voor hun medestudenten. Ook kom je via Favervuta in contact met nieuwe ontwikkelingen en technieken binnen de tandheelkunde en mondzorgkunde door de vele symposia die georganiseerd worden. Favervuta is een grote en heel gezellige vereniging die zijn leden ook vakkennis kan bijbrengen.

GeoVUsie is the study association for students of Earth Sciences and Earth, Economics and Sustainability at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. The association was established in 1980 as a merged association from the ashes of the G.V.V.U. (Geological Association Vrije Universiteit) and Varenius (Physical Geographers Association) and has since then grown to be an active association with almost 600 members. GeoVUsie has set several important goals. The most important ones are to stimulate a good orientation within trade and industry and to increase social cohesion among the students. To accomplish this the board, with its many committees, organizes a broad variety of activities. Examples of this would be study related activities like lectures, excursions and the two yearly Earth Sciences and Career Event; but also less substantive activities like sport activities, social drinks and festivities. Besides this students can always come by for all of their books and field work materials, which we are able to offer for a competitive price for our members. Room F-045 in the W&N-building is the Students Room of GeoVUsie, also known as the ‘Houtzagerij in den Koele Blonde’. Here you can enjoy your lunch, have a cup of coffee, take some time off or join us for our weekly social drink. The social drink named the ‘Donderdorst’ takes place on every thursday from 17:00 onwards. Here you can enjoy an exquisite Brand draft beer with your teachers and fellow students.

ISA - Islamitische Studentenvereniging Amsterdam
24
Followers
De roep van moslimstudenten die op zoek waren naar een vertegenwoordigend orgaan om hun belangen en behoeftes te vertalen naar concrete en haalbare doelstellingen, was al tientallen jaren duidelijk hoorbaar. Een groep studenten aan de Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam gaf daar gehoor aan: ISA werd op 24 september 2009 in het leven geroepen. Vandaar ook de knipoog in onze benaming naar de christelijke oorsprong van de VU: ‘Isa is het Arabische woord voor Jezus. Binnen enkele jaren zijn wij, zowel kwalitatief als kwantitatief, ongelooflijk snel gegroeid. Wij verzorgen niet enkel academische lezingen, maar behartigen ook de belangen van de (moslim)student door een proactieve rol te spelen in besluitvormingsprocessen op allerlei niveaus. Zowel onze islamitische identiteit als onze unieke visie op de rol van de (moslim)student onderscheiden ons van andere studentenverenigingen. Bovendien staat het behoud van een academische en religieuze insteek voorop en streven we ernaar de actualiteiten niet uit het oog te verliezen. Een groot pluspunt is onze culturele diversiteit waar we enorm trots op zijn! Afghaans, Albanees, Algerijns, Bosnisch, Dominicaans, Egyptisch, Ghanees, Guinéens, Hindoestaans, Indonesisch, Javaans, Jemenitisch, Libanees, Marokkaans, Nederlands, Pakistaans, Palestijns, Somalisch, Spaans, Surinaams, Syrisch, Tunesisch en Turks. Allemaal verschillende achtergronden die onder onze (bestuurs)leden voorkomen. Wij zijn ervan overtuigd dat deze culturele verrijking een enorme aanwinst is binnen onze Ummah en waar een groot deel van onze kracht in verscholen ligt. Hiermee vormen wij de ideale ontmoetingsplek om een netwerk op te bouwen, door hoogopgeleide (moslim)studenten bijeen te brengen en hun ideeën met elkaar uit te wisselen, van elkaar te leren en elkaars expertises in te zetten. Onze vereniging is echter niet enkel toegankelijk voor of gericht op moslimstudenten, maar komt ook op voor de belangen van studenten in het algemeen, ongeacht religie. Als officieel erkende studentenvereniging op de Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), de Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA) en de Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA) doen wij dagelijks ons best om dit waar te maken!

The lively and open atmosphere at Icarus has been successful in turning groups of students into a community of friends time and again over the course of our existence. We are determined to keep this spirit alive. Although, the corona crisis has made it much harder to come together in a safe way, we will remain close to each other, while keeping distance. As always we will remain open for everyone who wishes to build valuable connections during their study of philosophy.

Kleine Hans is een vereniging met als doel de student meer inzicht te geven in de (ab)normale geestelijke ontwikkeling van de mens. Dit door middel van maandelijkse lezingen waarbij veel ruimte is voor discussie. Door de relatief kleine opzet is in gesprek raken met elkaar ook goed mogelijk. De doelgroep betreft de studenten die extra geïnteresseerd zijn in de kinder- en jeugdpsychiatrie. Dit zijn voornamelijk studenten geneeskunde, psychologie, pedagogiek en studenten uit andere verwante studies. Wij behandelen gevarieerde, actuele en maatschappelijk relevante onderwerpen die in het reguliere onderwijs weinig tot niet aan bod komen. Enkele onderwerpen die wij o.a. behandeld hebben zijn: eetstoornissen, intergenerationeel trauma en auditieve hallucinaties. Meer behandelde en toekomstige onderwerpen staan in de agenda

PULSE Racing

PULSE Racing was established to further develop functional electrical stimulation (FES) for people with a spinal cord injury. Having paraplegia causes various physical problems. In addition to being unable to walk and an overall restriction of mobility, people with paraplegia also face other issues such as disturbed blood circulation and a higher risk of pressure ulcers. This, of course, has negative consequences for the quality of life and personal well-being. Treatment with FES has a proven positive effect on the physical condition of people with paraplegia. The active movements initiated through FES have been shown to improve blood flow, reduce the occurrence of pressure ulcers and increase psychological well-being. The scientific underpinning of these beneficial effects have given us an incentive and encouraged us to participate in international FES Bike Race, like we did during the Cybathlon in 2020. With our participation, we aim to make FES more widely known and motivate more people to use FES. PULSE Racing – We stimulate to cycle

In 1971 werd de Interfaculteit Lichamelijke Opvoeding opgericht. Op 18 oktober 1974 werd door studenten van de Interfaculteit een vergadering belegd, waarin besloten werd tot het oprichten van van de Studenten Organisatie van de Lichamelijke Opvoeding (S.O.L.O.). De naam ‘Interfaculteit Lichamelijke Opvoeding’ zorgde voor misverstanden over het type opleiding en studie, waardoor in 1987 werd gekozen de naam te veranderen in Faculteit der Bewegingswetenschappen. Aangezien de naam S.O.L.O. te veel connecties had met de oude naam van de faculteit is vanaf het studiejaar 1988/1989 besloten die naam te veranderen in Vereniging In Beweging (V.I.B.). Op dit moment kent deze studievereniging een Dagelijks Bestuur van vijf personen, elf vaste commissies, drie tot vier tijdelijke commissies en ongeveer zeshonderdvijfitg leden. Er mag dus gezegd worden dat de V.I.B. een bloeiende vereniging is. Met meer dan vijftig activiteiten op jaarbasis wordt er door de verschillende commissies alles aan gedaan om een zo gevarieerd en interessant mogelijk aanbod aan activiteiten te bieden. Educatieve activiteiten, borrels, feesten, sporttoernooien, het Gala, de Wintersport, Familiedag en VVV-dag; genoeg om de studenten Bewegingswetenschappen niet alleen bij hun studie te begeleiden, maar ook bij te dragen aan een onvergetelijke studententijd. De V.I.B. heeft een eigen kamer, waar het Dagelijks Bestuur vaak aanwezig is en er voor de leden ruimte is om gezellig een praatje te komen maken of even te ontspannen op een van de banken. De VIB-kamer, kamer D-048, is te vinden op de begane grond in de Medische Faculteit. Deze kamer is iedere werkdag van 11.00 uur tot 15.00 uur geopend, maar wanneer de deur op andere tijden open is, is iedereen natuurlijk ook van harte welkom om even binnen te lopen! Voor het nuttigen van een kopje koffie of thee ben je hier aan het goede adres. Meer informatie over onder andere het Dagelijks Bestuur, de verschillende commissies en de activiteiten kun je vinden op deze site. Wil je echter nog meer weten over de V.I.B., heb je vragen, opmerkingen, problemen, ideeën of kritische noten?

We bereiken dit door het opzetten van projecten en evenementen voor mensen binnen de LHBTQIA+ gemeenschap en voor andere geïnteresseerden.
