Application Procedure

Learning to handle stress, providing effective feedback, receiving criticism and making decisions around tight schedules are important skills that are not easily picked up in the classroom. You might have had a time management class, or read something about giving feedback but it is only after you have put it into practice that you begin to understand the fine nuances of these soft skills.

In some ways, a year in a committee of the EFR forces you to take a look into the mirror and confront yourself with the facts. Nobody is perfect and you might make mistakes or lose your temper, but luckily you are not alone! Falling back on your team and receiving their feedback will provide you with something of immeasurable value.

Social The EFR organises tons of social activities each year. As a committee member you can participate in almost all of them! From our own introduction weekends, parties, Active Members weekend, our monthly social drink and other get-togethers, there is always something going on. You will form a very strong bond with your committee and other EFR Active Members.



Active Members Academy

As a committee member you are not alone in doing your tasks. The EFR-Board is there to help you when needed. Every committee has one supervisor from the board, who will guide you through your year. The EFRBoard consists of eight senior students with committee experience who are dedicating one fulltime year to the EFR. They have been in your position and are always there to help.

The Active Members Academy is there to help you to grow and develop yourself whilst keeping your future career in mind. You and your committee will receive training as Active Members and per committee position. For example, the Marketing Team will get an InDesign course for free, the commercials will all get a commercial training and all of the Active Members have the opportunity to develop themselves in unique ways. Think of trainings in cooperation with leading companies like J.P. Morgan, McKinsey or YER, but also trainings focused on your personal development. A year at the EFR will make you learn more things than you have ever imagined!


HAVING FUN! With your committee

With all the Active Members

As a committee member you are bound to have fun with your committee. You have meetings every week, but you can also have dinner, get some drinks in the city or have a committee weekend! The supervisor from the board is happy to come along with these fun activities.

The Active Members Weekend, the EFR-Prom and the other activities the High Five committee organises are there for you as an Active Member only! All the Active Members join, which means you are partying with more than 125 people! You can also join the different trips the EFR organises, like the Ski Trip or the City Trip.

One thing is for sure, you are g 05

going to have a lot of fun as an EFR-Active Member. 06
