SES Membership: 

To sign up for SES, you pay a €30,- sign-up fee for the first three years. After three years you pay €5,- for every year you want to stay a member. SES membership has significant benefits, which are far greater than the €30,- subscription fee.

There are many financial benefits coming along with a SES membership: however, first and foremost being a member makes your student life in Amsterdam a whole lot more fun! Among many things, you can become an active member by being part of a committee and organize one of our many diverse events in a relaxed and collegiate group. This gives you the opportunity to learn many new skills, such as communication or organization, as well as meeting other like-minded students from your program. SES activities range from more serious events, such as a Career Dinner, conferences and debates, to our weekly Borrel in a cozy Amsterdam bar.

We also organize several themed Borrels and pub quizzes and pub lectures. Next to a couple of weekend outings, one of our yearly highlights is the Study Trip, where we take a big group of SES members to countries such as Russia, Turkey, Albania, Kosovo, Ukraine or the Baltic countries (just to name a few) in a period of 10 – 12 days.

In the beginning of the academic year, SES organizes an Introduction Weekend for our new members, where we take approximately 70 first year students on a fun weekend away. You can find more information here. If you have any questions about the membership, the Introduction Weekend or the SES in general, feel free to send an email to

The SES offers its members a 10% discount on books, when they are ordered via SES.

Financial benefits

SES membership also offers several financial benefits. At SES events, our members pay a reduced fee, compared to non-members. Furthermore, some events are organized solely for our members, for instance, our yearly study trip.
