Save the Date: Parents Day

Save the Date: Parents Day
Location:  Huygens Building
Date:  Saturday, February 24, 2024 09:00 until 18:00

Hello biologist!

In the next academic year ABO will again organize a parentsday to show your family what it is like to study biology at the Radboud university.
The day will be completely free including coffee and lunch.

To allow international students to inform their families early (and possibly book tickets early) we already announced the date of the parentsday. Saturday the 24th of February 2024.
However, keep in mind that the actual programme is still being worked on and is thus subject to change. To give you an overview of what to expect we will explain what the day was like in previous years.

In the morning (not 8:30, we value your sleep) we will get together for a cup of coffee and afterwards follow three (short) lectures of different topics in biology. These will have a break in between. After the lectures we will have lunch with everyone and we will start our afternoon programme.
We will make groups for in the afternoon that will alternate between a tour around the huygens building, including the greenhouse, and several practicals. Last year we had a microbiology practical, an animal practical (with optional rat dissection!) and a plant practical.
At the very end of the day we will close with a short borrel where we can chat about the day, socialize and have a drink.

Dependent on how many sign ups we get there will be a limit on the amount of people you can bring. You can always bring at least two people. These can be your parents but everyone's situation is different and especially for internationals it can sometimes be hard to bring certain family members. So feel free to bring your aunt, uncle, sister, brother, best friend etc instead.


  • Q; How do I sign up?
  • Sign ups will be trough an online form and we will promote this when it becomes available.
  • Q; Where/when can I get more information about the day itself?
  • The lecturers, practicals and other information about the day will be added to the website when confirmed.
  • Q; Will the day be organized in dutch or English?
  • The programme on the day itself will be in english since this is an english Bachelor. However we will discuss the possibility of optional Dutch tours and practical help.

If you have any questions at any point you can contact ABO at any time by emailing to or just asking any of our members! We really do not bite, ask ahead.

We hope to see you there, and have fun!
-cheers, the ABO team <3
