From january 2000 onwards, Nordom has been the study association for Scandinavian Studies. Our members study Danish, Norwegian or Swedish or just take great interest in Scandinavia. We have about a hundred members, so you’ll get to know almost everyone! You will make lots of new friends this way and maybe even build up a network for later in life.
Nordom organizes many events surrounding Scandinavia. We celebrate several Scandinavian holidays, such as Lucia and Midsommar. On top of that we often organize study-related events such as workshops or lectures and of course our annual study trip. Finally we regularly have drinks together (so-called borrels) at Café van Zuylen, right around the corner from the faculty, and every once in a while we watch a Scandinavian film or TV-series together. In this way you can get to know your fellow students and other members of the association in a hyggelig way. We also invite exchange students from Scandinavia to our borrels, so you can practice your Danish, Norwegian or Swedish with a native. If you’re an exchange student yourself, do come along as well and speak your mother tongue with someone eager to learn your language!
