Study Association IK

History of the Study Association

IK emerged from the previously named Study Association SKABÉ. This Association was founded for the study program Art and Arts Policies (Kunst en Kunstbeleid) in Groningen. This study program changed into Arts, Culture and Media in September 2003. This is how a new Study Association was initiated: Study Association IK. On the 1st of September 2003 IK had its first members and after thriving years, we have approximately 200 members. IK is the Study Association for the students following the program Arts, Culture and Media. IK offers students possible ways to be involved in the study related activities but also non-study related activities.


The first-year students are welcomed at the beginning of the year with an Opening Party and the Introduction Camp. This takes place in the first week. Furthermore, the first-year students have the opportunity to attend some activities that are exclusively organized for them in the weeks that follow.

There are many study related activities that are organized by IK. There are Career Events (including a Networking Event), the Conference, books, Museum Salon, Taste of Arts and an international Excursion. The non-study related activities are not directly related to the study program, and they include the IK-borrels, parties, the Almanac, and the Artefact. The members of the Study Association have the opportunity to apply for committees and organize these events. This is a great addition to your resume and an good opportunity to enhance your professional skills.


Being a member of the Study Association has many perks. One of them is the discount on the books for the various courses of the program.

Note: Only members can profit from this discount.
