The Student for a day Committee of study Association “De Veetelers” organizes each year five activities for high school students who are thinking about studying Animal Sciences. The days are designed to give you a good impression of the life of a student of Animal Sciences. So you will follow a lecture, a practical and you will be giving a tour in Carus to show multiple sides of the bachelor program.
Become a Student for a day of Animal Sciences is a so-called collective 'meeloopdag' and are nowadays organized online. This means that you follow an introductory lecture by the Student for a day Committee and a lecture about one topic that is part of the bachelor program of Animal Sciences. After that you participate in a practical and you get a virtual impression of our research facility Carus. There is also a possibility to participate individually with an Animal Sciences student throughout the year. Through the following website you can sign up for this: Walk along with a student - WUR
During the Student for a day activity, we try to give a good impression of the study, by addressing subjects that are up to date and are going a little bit deeper into the matter in the lectures.
Each year there are lots of enthusiastic students who subscribe for the student for a day activity who meet again in their first study-year. It is a good way to learn more about the study, but also your fellow students-to-be. There are also students who already know they are going to study Animal Sciences who come to this day, just to get a taste of the real Veetelers-atmosphere.
So if you consider studying Animal Sciences, sign up for the walk along day! Register on Student for a day - Animal Sciences - WUR
