VU New Year’s Gala 2019

For the first time, we will be awarding all teaching prizes at the same time during the VU New Year’s Gala.

12/17/2018 | 11:31 AM

We will celebrate the New Year in style, shining a spotlight on the ambitions of our students and staff. All students and members of staff are warmly invited to attend on 24 January, from 15:45, Auditorium VU Main building.

Students have been nominated for thesis awards, the Student Talent Award and, for the first time, the Student Initiative Prize. Each year, young teachers have the chance to win the Teacher Talent Award, and teachers with a long service record are nominated for the Van der Duijn Schouten Teaching Award.

The awards ceremony will be hosted by writer Ernest van de Kwast, who will interview the nominees and the winners. Put on your party clothes, come to the VU New Year’s Gala and raise your glass to the New Year!
