BeeVee is the study association for biology students of the Radboud University. As a member of BeeVee you get a discount on your study materials, such as the necessary books and labcourse materials.

There are a few different ways for students to have a say in the Radboud University. These are depicted in the overview below.

3. What exactly does Binding Study Advice (BSA) mean?

The BSA implies that each student who is registered for the first year of a full-time bachelor's program, may not continue the program if he/she doesn't meet the requirements of the BSA. For first year (medical) biology students who started in 2016 these requirements are earning 39 EC. When you don't manage to meet the requirements of the BSA you won't be able to enroll for the study (medical) biology at the Radboud University.

If you have done another study program before studying (medica) biology you may get an exemption for certain courses. However, the EC you get for these courses won't be taken into account when determining whether you have accomplished the requirements of the BSA. You have to earn 39 new EC on the Radboud University in the first year to get your BSA.

4. Where can I buy books?
