Starting your studies

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 School of ICT in Eindhoven.

For a successful enrollment it is necessary that you come to Eindhoven on 16 or 17 August 2022 in person to show your original diploma from your previous education with the corresponding list of marks. This is an important condition to complete your enrollment. If you do not manage to come to Eindhoven on those dates, your enrollment will be terminated. In that case, you could reapply for February 2023.

Everyone who is admitted wil get a personal invitation with the details by e-mail.

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."

Alumnus about his experiences

  • Your introduction week
  •   Programme
    The new academic year starts in September... But before your studies start, you'll first take part in the introduction week. That's Purple 2022! During this introduction week (Monday 22 to Friday 26 August), getting to know each other is key.


    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.
