Everything is included, from study sessions and international trips to collaborations with companies, parties, and excursions. Besides, you can buy your study books at a discount at Stress and make use of their summaries and tutor platform.

Stress has six pillars, which greatly enhance your time as a student: General, Study, Meet, Practice, Develop and International.


All in all, Stress provides you with a community. You are welcome in the association room any time to get free coffee, tea or lemonade and relax on the couches and play some games with other members during the breaks or between lectures.
