My introduction week - Thursday 22 August - Saturday 31 August 2019

For international students arriving early, Fontys offers two welcome days on Thursday 22 August and Friday 23 August. More information can be found at the programme.

The new academic year will soon be upon us. Once again we’ll be organising the Purple Freshers’ Week for the new students.

Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 August are reserved for individual course activities. Some focus on teambuilding and conviviality, whilst others opt for a programme that primarily focuses on the course already, with guest lectures and practical assignments. On Wednesday 28 August new students in Eindhoven, Tilburg,’s-Hertogenbosch, Venlo and Utrecht will participate in an unmissable city programme.

The week’s grand finale will take place on Thursday 29 August when all the freshers from Eindhoven, Tilburg,’s-Hertogenbosch, Sittard, Veghel and Utrecht can enjoy the Purple Festival.

On Friday 30 August and Saturday 31 August, we have social programmes at school and at the park.
