What better way to learn about different cultures and people than working along with them!

Although the university gives you enough opportunities with the possibility of group work, a meeting in an informal environment is where we get to know the best of people. And yes, info markets during AID, this was another way to get to know about these clubs.

Regardless you learn more about who offers the best freebie rather than about the association itself ?

Study associations:

Either during the study day of AID or through course of period 1 you will manage to learn about them. Every study holds a separate association which you can be connected to. Here you meet people of your same study where you’ll bond over similar knowledge. Activities related to your academics can be found prevalent here.
