FAQ

GLiTCH

What is a study association?

A study association is an organization which provides additional study-related activities outside of the curriculum. It is completely run by students of that study and employs a structure which revolves around different committees. 

What is GLiTCH?

GLiTCH is the study association for CMD students from the Hanze with a special interest in gaming. With the rapid growth of the Game Design major it became necessary to have an organization which exclusively focuses on the well-being of those students. 

What does GLiTCH offer?

GLiTCH offers a wide plethora of educational and social events and the framework to organize them. Because all of our activities are conceived and managed by students, they are always up to date with the wishes of the member base. Additionally, GLiTCH has a growing network of partners and sponsors who provide us with exclusive deals and discounts. For example, in August of 2019 we received a 50% discount of Gamescom trade tickets. With this, our trips abroad committee organized a wonderful visit to Cologne for a great price.

How does the association work?

The daily functioning of the association comprises of two distinct entities - the committees and the sitting board. 

We have numerous committees which handle the low-level organization of the activities and are separate from each other. These are formed out of enthusiastic students by the sitting board. 

The board is an elected body of the most driven members willing to spend a lot of their time making sure the association has fresh opportunities, sufficient finances, and a strong structure.

How do we help with your study?

We organize many workshops about art, programming, business, and other topics which the members find interesting. In addition to those, GLiTCH hosts regular game jams, testing and networking events, and visits to game companies.
