VOS is the study association for Linguistics and Sign Language Linguistics at the University of Amsterdam. We are there for all those who are studying or are planning on studying at UvA.
As a relatively small community, we try to see each other every two weeks at our traditional ‘Borrel’, when we wind down and talk about how we’re doing. Furthermore, we often go to various exhibitions, workshops, conferences and otherwise interesting linguistic activities. The zenith of each year is the study trip, which has taken us as to places such as Sweden, Italy and even Brazil!
For first year students we organize the so-called TWeekend. A weekend at the very start of each year when we get to know each other, by playing games, sharing drinks and stories. Also, by becoming a member of VOS, you receive a nice discount on all your textbooks via our bookshop Athenaeum.
