Dear MSP student,
On behalf of all Aperture members I would like to welcome you to the Aperture website.
Aperture is the official MSP study association and we try to make this year as fun, interesting and educational as possible for you. Throughout the year we organize a lot of events, for example Broaden Your Aperture lectures, study trips, board game nights and of course parties.
All MSP students and staff can become a member of Aperture, and as of the start of the academic year of 2017-2018 every MSP student will automatically be granted membership. Becoming a member means getting discounts on parties, hoodies and books, but also getting more involved in what Aperture does. At the General Member Meeting (GMM) you get to vote on all kind of Aperture matters. As a member you can also be part of committees, for example the events committee or the charity committee!
Dive into this website further for more information about Aperture! I wish you all a very successful year and please do not hesitate to contact us whenever you have any comments, questions or need help!
Julie Grosse-Sommer, Aperture President
Membership, discounts and much more!
By joining the Maastricht Science Programme, you will automatically be granted a free membership in Aperture, the student Association of the Maastricht Science Programme. We represent the students interests and organise both academic and leisure activities.
As a member of Aperture you get a say in the activities organised by the association and benefit from discounts at our parties, book sale, hoodie sale and so on. Also, you will be granted a free Jules membership, which can help you around Maastricht with everything you need to get started.
Members are invited to attending the General Members Meetings which take place at least twice a year and allow you to vote on matters relevant to Aperture and yourself.
Interested in becoming more involved? Join a committee, for example for the organisation of parties, trips etc… or even run for a position on the board of Aperture!
We are the association by MSP students for MSP students.
“The MSP is ripping a hole in the conventional way that the natural sciences are taught, the open curriculum and the Problem-Based-Learning being the two that immediately spring to mind for me. Also, we’re trying to create scientists that are interdisciplinary, providing openings and lenses from one discipline to view into another.”
Daniel Gregory (MSP student, Class of 2014)
