Study Association: AIM

Our study association AIM is an initiative by enthusiastic students in collaboration with PPLE. AIM brings university closer to students and vice versa. They’re also one of the main groups that connects students outside the classroom, so it’s a great way to get to know your fellow students in a different setting.

Introducing AIM

PPLE’s very own study association, AIM, is an initiative by enthusiastic students in collaboration with PPLE. It tries to bring the university closer to PPLE students and vice versa. For instance, they help with practical things, such as discounts on study books, but mainly organise varying events for our students!

This can range from academically oriented to culturally enlightening, travel valuing, sports related and social. They hope to provide you with the opportunity to get to know fellow students and staff from the start of your study career through to the end. They encourage the PPLE student community to organise anything that might spark their interest, so students can continue to grow outside of their academic career.

Become a member

To enjoy all of these amazing experiences, all PPLE students are more than welcome to become a member of the study association. PPLE and AIM want to give students every opportunity to develop themselves by, for example, starting their own groups, organising original events in combination (with instance staff or guest speakers) and going on cultural activities – the options are endless!
