The National Committee for Biology Students, in Dutch Landelijk Overleg Biologie Studenten (LOBS), is a group of biology students from all the Dutch universities. The goal of LOBS is to serve the interests of all the biology students by means of a monthly meeting where the problems and developments of all the universities are discussed. LOBS is also trying to draw the outlines of all the biology studies and the job market in the Netherlands. Hereby is giving information about bachelors and masters in Biology a tool to reach the goal. An important activity is the country wide Masterday, which is organized once a year.

LOBS is supported by the Dutch Institute for Biology, in Dutch Nederlands Instituut voor Biologie (NIBI).

Because of the upcoming internationalisation in the different bachelors Biology in the Netherlands, LOBS has set out its opinion in a letter. If you are interested, you can read the letter here.
