What is GLV Idun?

The studies Biology, Biomedical Engineering and Life, Science & Technology together with all associated Masters are all part of one study association, which is the “Groninger LevenswetenschappenVereniging” (Groninger Life Science Association) Idun, in short GLV Idun. Our association consists of 21 committees, all of which organize different activities. Some organize study-related activities like lectures or a congress. Others organize career-related activities like workshops, company visits, and a professions afternoon. Lastly, they of course also organize activities for the needed relaxation. There are weekly drinks, monthly parties, yearly galas, multiple national and foreign excursions, several sports events and there is an annual theater play for and by our members.



Why should I become a member of GLV Idun?

Members of our association can order their study books at a reduced price. This discount can easily get towards 15% from the advised selling price. The discount you receive on books is more than €18,50 because of that. That means you’ve earned your contribution back! Besides that, you can buy a cheap lab coat and lab goggles from us, which are mandatory for laboratory courses.

Get to know more people by going to our activities or by joining one of our 21 committees. As a member, you get free access to all our parties and social drinks, you can read our digital magazine or get one of the physical copies and you get a free copy of our annual almanac. For all activities which have an entrance fee, our members pay a reduced price in comparison to guests. 

At the beginning of each academic year, our Firstyear Introduction committee (EI) organizes an introduction period during which you will get to know your fellow students and all the association has to offer. More information about the introduction period can be found here.
