Diving became a popular sport and that is not without reason. The feeling of weightlessness, being active outside, the adventure of being in a completely different world where remarkable species live in alien landscapes, make diving a unique and marvelous experience.

Who are we?

The Groninger Studenten Duik Club (Groningen Student Divers Association) Ad Fundum is a diving organization for students from Groningen. Our organization is open for everyone who studies at the Hanze University or University of Groningen. Ad Fundum was founded in 1973 in order to make diving possible for students by giving dive training, making diving material available and organizing (dive) events; all of this considering the budget of student.

NEW: Ad Fundum is now officially English Friendly!

As student life in Groningen becomes more and more internationally oriented, and international students play an active role within our club, in 2017 we officially started teaching in English. The training for the first star license will be completely in English, more advanced training in English is work in progress. Furthermore, all our formal club and board meetings are in English from now on.

En voor alle Nederlandstalige studenten, geen zorgen, we praten nog genoeg in het Nederlands! Er staat niet voor niets “English Friendly”: onze club blijft gewoon Nederlands maar we houden rekening met onze internationale duikmaatjes. We hebben recent onze website helemaal vertaald naar het Engels en (momenteel) is de Nederlandstalige versie offline gehaald. In de nieuwe website integreren we straks ook weer onze moedertaal. We gaan er van uit dat iedereen die in Groningen studeert al zo “werelds” is dat een Engelse tekst geen probleem meer hoeft te zijn. En over de lesboeken: deze zijn ook gewoon in het Nederlands. We hebben een speciale regeling voor mensen die Engelstalig zijn. De colleges zijn wel in het Engels.

Learning how to dive?

Would you like to get to know the underwater world but do you lack a divers license? No problem! At Ad Fundum you can get all licenses up to the 3* license. You don’t have to pay for your education and training, only for your course / instruction books. This is made possible by our own instructors who like to teach diving for fun. It is even possible to grow towards becoming an instructor yourself!

Our club

Next to the many dive weekends, the pool training is the backbone of our social life. Every Monday evening we have our weekly training sessions. After the training, people usually go for a beer in our regular pub. Besides this we have an extended agenda throughout the year with fun, relaxing, exciting and / or educational events.

Introduction Dives

Do you want to experience what it is to dive? You can enlist for an Introduction dive during a Monday evening. You start with a lecture about what it is to dive, how to dive safely, and we will tell you something about our club. After the lecture you will actually dive underwater with one of our experienced instructors. And after your dive? Don’t go away yet as we are going to have a beer at our regular pub to exchange bold (dive) stories.

Ad Fundum Transportation

Finally, in our most recent club meeting we decided to acquire our own means of transportation so you will not be dependent on your parents car or a rental vehicle. This makes diving super easy and really accessible!
