AcademiCie (Academic Committee)
This committee is dedicated to organising all kinds of activities related to culture and study. Examples of these academic activities are interesting lectures, visits to musea and many other educative trips. The committee also provides a list of fun and interesting activities to do which you can find every month in our newsletter!

AcCie (Activity Committee)
The AcCie organises many different and fun activities throughout the whole year, varying from Christmas celebrations to the annual TWeekend. The committee never fails to organise a spectacular activity!

ConferenCie (Conference Commmittee)
Every year, the Conference Committee organises the T.W.I.S.T. Linguistics Conference. They make sure speakers from the Netherlands – but also from other countries – provide interesting lectures about all kinds of linguistic aspects.

EducaCie (Education Committee)
The Education Committee is the connection between the study association and the linguistics program. They play a role in providing information regarding important choices during and after the study program. Together with the coordinator of studies and the study program committee, the EducaCie for example organises an information meeting about the different tracks for the first year students, and a career event with Linguistics Alumni.

InterCom (Internationalisation Committee)
The Internationalisation Committee was founded to help integrate international students into our association. To achieve this, the committee members provide translations for important association documents and this website. Next to this, the commmittee launched a buddy system, so that international students are linked to a Dutch student. They can help them find their way in student life in the Netherlands.

RedacCie (Magazine Committee)
This committee is responsable for the quarterly magazine of our association, the Twister. Of course, this magazine does not write itself! The committee members write articles, create linguistic puzzles and take care of the lay-out and distribution of the magazine.

VakanCie (Holiday Committee)
This committee is dedicated to organizing an amazing holiday abroad every year. We step outside the Netherlands for an intriguing quest for culture and, of course, language! Since our focus is on language, chances are you will even be able to talk with the locals by the end of this week. On top of that, there will always be enough time to sit back and enjoy this carefree week in the middle of a hectic year!
