Why should I join IK?
There are several reasons for becoming a member of IK. First of all, you will get to know a lot of people during the activities of IK. During the IK-borrels at Het Pakuis there is time to have a casual chat with your classmates. Also, all activities organized by the Study Association are cheaper for members. There are even more reasons to join IK. For example, the book prices. Especially for our members we offer textbooks at a 5% discount on the Dutch books and 10% off of foreign books, this compared to the recommended retail prices. Another reason to join IK is that you can take place in one of our committees or perhaps on the board. By organizing one of the activities you will learn to work in a group and you can exercise knowledge acquired during your study.
