My introduction week - Information and Communication Technology

Dear new students Fontys ICT Department,

Congratulations on being selected as new ICT student at Fontys University of Applied Sciences!

We would now like to invite you to the introduction week that will start on the 21st of August 2017.

Introduction is the way to get to know your classmates, get familiar with the great city of Eindhoven and learn about the Dutch way of life! Of course, it’s not compulsory, but it is highly recommended to attend as it will give you a kick start into your life here at Fontys.

This introduction is organized by Proxy, which is the student association for the international ICT stream of Fontys. We hope you will become familiar with us during your study, and even become a member if you’d like to!

During this introduction week, you will be split up into groups, which we call families, with second and third year students as your ‘mamas and papas’ (mommies and daddies). They will be your leaders for the week, feel free to ask them any questions about the school, association, city, or anything you need help with.

You will get to know your ‘new family’ well, while we give you a tour around the city, around the school, and have a lot of fun!

Attending at the introduction week is FREE.

We really hope you join us for this introduction week, as we said before, it will really give you a kick start to your Dutch life!
