I'm an international student

Welcome to the Netherlands! Hopefully you are all settled and ready to enjoy your exchange to the fullest. To help you with that, we organise a lot of activities to meet a lot of international and national students. We are the JSVU: the official general law society of the Utrecht University. One of the biggest in the Netherlands. With over 3500 members, we have one goal: looking after the interests of the Utrecht law students.

How can you participate? First of all, you can become a member for free as an international student to use our services. Become a member here.

We organise around 80 activities every year. A lot of our activities are also open for international students. We have three kind of services we offer:

  • Educational services: we offer books for all bachelor and master courses. You can order your books online in our webshop.  If you are a member, you get 15% discount on all English books. You can pick up your ordered books in the JSVU Studystore. Click here for the opening hours. It is also possible to have your books home delivered. Caution: It is not possible to have your books delivered at your foreign home address, please use a Dutch address.
  • Social services: We have a lot of activities to meet other students. Every month we have our member drinks at Feestcafé de Kneus. Look at our Facebook for the dates! We also organise other parties, for example a prom, pub quizes and city trips. If you are interested, look at our activitieslist on the website to see what is coming up.
  • Law related services: Besides the social activities and educational services we want our members to get a good insight in the job opportunities after your studentlife. That is why we organise for example a NGO-fair.
