Who are we?
VSPVU is the Study association for Psychology and Child Studies students' at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam. With approximately 1600 members, we are one of the big five associations of the VU. Study associations like they exist in the Netherlands are a unique concept. Study associations begin where the study program stops, it is an extension to the regular study program introducing you deeper in the working field of Psychology and Child Studies through lectures, a conference, workshops or company visits. Also, students can come to VSPVU for all kinds of handy information and you are always welcome to come around for a cup of coffee or tea and a chat at our room. And don't forget to check our amazing parties, social drinks, travels and other fun activities! For more information about our committees and our activities, you can click on committees above.
