Book sales:
Get a discount on your study books with the FMF! You'll receive a discount of about 10% off the normal listed price through our partner StudyStore. When it is time to buy your books, simply head to Book Sale on the homepage of the FMF website. You do need to be a member of the FMF, but even buying one book via us is profitable for you!

Catch-up Sessions:
To help students with their courses, the FMF organises Catch-up sessions together with the teaching assistants of the respective courses. These are sessions, usually halfway through the block, during which the teaching assistant will summarise the first part of the course and answer all your questions. Since this is a initiative of the FMF this will not be available for all courses, but we try to organise as many of them as possible.

Handing in tests and the Exam database:
In the FMF room, we have a mail box where you can hand in your tests after an exam. This way we can upload them to the FMF database such that students in the coming years can benefit from them. Also, if you are the first person to hand in an exam you will get book vouchers (if you hand in enough). You can find more information about the handing in processes on the Exam database.

Coffee and tea:
You can always come by to get some FREE coffee or tea at the FMF room.

Free bapao in the first 2 weeks:
During the first 2 weeks of the academic year you can get free bapao at the FMF room. You can find them in the freezer next to the fridge.

Snacks and drinks:
The FMF has food and snacks which you can buy at the FMF room for very little money. To do this, you will have to link a NFC capable card (such as your OV card or your bank card) to our "streep systeem". If you are in the FMF room, you can ask a board member to connect your card to the FMF system. Once this is done, you will be able to pay with your card. At the end of each month, the money you spend will be deducted automatically from your bank account.

FMF activities:
The FMF organises a few activities each week. You can find these on the poster boards scattered around the Nijenborgh and the Bernoulliborg, on the website or in your own agenda if you add the ICAL link found below.

Committee market:
On the 26th of September, we will organise a committee market to promote the different kinds of committees that are part of the FMF. Here, you can ask previous members on their experiences in these committees. You will also be able to join the committees at this event.
