Study Organisation CONGO

Biological and Biomedical Sciences students at the UvA have united in the study organisation CONGO and have a chapter for master students.

The Mastercommittee was established a few years ago especially for master students to organize study related or social events (each month).

We organize the Career, Beer & BBQ (CBB) in collaboration with the Graduate School of Life and Earth Sciences. At the CBB alumni of life-science talk about their career from different sectors with a BBQ at the end to close a fantastic afternoon.
The faculty introduction is also organized by the Mastercommittee and is day for new master students.
A few other examples of what the mastercommittie has done last year: a cocktail workshop, dance (Rock-and-Roll) workshop and an excursion to a company.

If you are a master student and want to help or know more about us, don’t hesitate and send an email to

If you want to stay posted about our activitities, follow the Bio-masters facebook page.
