Membership

Becoming an M.S.V. Alchimica member

Almost every Molecular Life Sciences student is a member of M.S.V. Alchimica to be able to profit from seminars, the ‘gezelligheid’ and discount on study books. As a member you will receive the union newsletter, ‘Periodica’, four times a year, and you can also come to all activities and will get a discount on the books you buy in the WURShop.

Do you want to become a member of M.S.V. Alchimica? Email the M.S.V. Alchimica exec and they will send you a sign up form. During the first year introduction module, ‘Introductie Moleculaire Levenswetenschappen en Biotechnologie’ students will be asked anyway if they wish to become a member. Membership costs 7.50 euros per calendar year, and the first half year is free for first years!

Changing your personal details

The members file is kept up to date by the secretary of the M.S.V. Alchimica exec. To make this task easier we ask that you keep them informed of changes to your address, phone number, etc. please email any changes to the secretary as soon as possible as they are needed to keep you well informed and to ensure you receive the Periodica and ALV-invitations.

Membership after a change of courses

If you decide to change courses you can still remain a member of Alchimica. However, should you wish to end your membership, send an e-mail explaining your reasons (such as changing course) and let us know if you wish to remain a member of not.

Alchimica for alumni

Unfortunately, alumni cannot remain Alchimica members. However, you can become a sponsor! Sponsors receive the Periodica and can come to all activities, except for those reserved for members only such as the ALV. Sponsorship costs a minimum of 10 euros a year according to personal limits and desires. After you graduate your membership will automatically be changes to sponsorship. It would be helpful if you could send a message to the Alchimica secretary informing us of your graduation and new email and home address so we can continue to send you the Periodica and keep you informed of activities for alumni such as a reunion. You can also then confirm if you don indeed wish to become a sponsor.
