Important change in assessment process

Due to a change proposal, approved by our Board on 6 June 2018, you are no longer expected to sign your assessment forms at the exam administration office (EA).

The email in which you provide the EA with your results (assessment forms, Safe Assign report, etc) will be used as your consent for processing, publishing and archiving these results.

The EA will invite the programme directors to sign all remaining assessment forms.

Register for a Chair Massage at FASoS

To release work stress, chair massages by a professional masseuse are offered to all FASoS scientific and support staff.

The massage sessions take place (mostly) every Tuesday and Thursday between 11.30 and 13.00, in room 0.002 at Grote Gracht 80-82. You can participate once a week for 15 minutes. The massage involves a fully clothed treatment of the head, neck, shoulders, back and arms. It lowers stress and is pain-relieving.

A registration list is located at the reception desk at GG 90-92.
