Starting your studies

When starting your studies at Fontys, it is nice to know when we expect to meet you on campus for the first time and what you will experience in the first months at Fontys Engineering.

For a successful enrollment it is necessary that you come to the Student Administration office (room 0.47 Nexus Building, Rondom 1, Eindhoven) in person to show your original diploma from your previous education with the corresponding list of grades. This is an important condition to complete your enrollment before you can start your studies. You can visit us according to the schedule below:

Monday 22 August

8.30 – 12.00 hrs: Mechanical Engineering + Mathematical Engineering

12.30 – 16.00 hrs: Mechatronics + Digital Technology Engineering (Master)

Tuesday 23 August

8.30 – 12.00 hrs: All international students who participate in the introduction programme of study association Innovum

At Fontys Engineering an introduction week is organised for all new bachelor and master students of English Engineering courses in Eindhoven. Here you will get to know your fellow students and meet friends for life. You will be introduced to your study programme and study city. It is not compulsory, but we strongly recommend it. It is the start of a (new) social life in Eindhoven. Click here for the programme.

After the Innovum/Purple introduction week (not obligatory), you will officially start your studies with a gathering for the first years students. This meeting takes place on August 29 and attendance is obligatory. You will receive information regarding the first lesson week, such as your lesson schedule and orientation. You will also meet your study supervisor, some of your teachers, and your classmates. Please carefully look where and at what time you start as each study programme has its own start!

    If you want to plan holidays or other activities, it is useful to know when there are no classes.

    Before starting, I couldn't have imagined neither all the ups, neither the downs that awaited me. But if I could, I would do it again."
