Get to know your course and make friends for life
You get to know your fellow students and meet friends for life. You will be introduced to your study programme and study city. You will eat together, discover the city together, get to know each other and the study programme, make memories together and much more... What that will look like, what you need, where you need to be, who you can contact, you can find all that here! We will make it a fantastic week, of course within the Corona rules.
* If necessary, the programme may be changed to take account of the Corona measures in force at the time. Check this page regularly to stay informed.
The Fontys Engineering introduction programme has lots of fun activities and moments. An experience that you definitely do not want to miss! Below we have very briefly summarised what your days will look like.
Wake up with a hungover breakfast. This will be followed by some chill games. You will finish the introduction week with a Hawaii party in the pub.
We hope you enjoyed it and made many new friends. Good luck during your studies and see you at Fontys!
