The new academic year starts in September ... but before your studies start, you'll first take part in the introduction week. That's Purple 2023! During the introduction week getting to know each other is key.

Get to know your study programme and make friends for life

You get to know your fellow students and meet new people from around the world. You will be introduced to your study programme, the university, and the city of Eindhoven.

What that will look like, what you need, where you need to be, who you can contact, you can find all that information here!


Below you can see all the activities in which you will participate:


International students are invited to join us at the Fontys campus for diploma validation and to meet other international students. You will also receive an introduction to important facilities for international student life, such as the International Desk and Student Help Center. At the end of the day, we will gather for a drink together.


Today is the day! You will be divided into introduction groups to meet your fellow classmates. Afterwards, you will meet your teachers and mentors and become familiar with the Fontys building. We will have lunch together with students from another international study programme (International Business), participate in a fun sports activity, and have the option to join a beer cantus in the city center of Eindhoven.


Get ready for an exciting day! We will host a Crazy88 game in the city center of Eindhoven. You’ll explore local sites with your introduction group and have a great time completing challenges and making new friends. Afterwards, we will head to a BBQ and join a pub tour on the famous street Stratumseind.


On Thursday, we will attend the Fontys Purple Festival! Enjoy fun games, drinks, food, and music with all Fontys students in the Netherlands! Bond with your classmates and meet other students from all over the country!


To end our Intro Week on a high note, you can choose to join an optional BBQ with all international Fontys students. Enjoy good food, drinks, and bond with your fellow students.

Fontys Welcome Party

On August 25th, from 4PM to 8PM, Fontys organises a Welcome party. This event is all about getting to know fellow international students. From 4 PM to 8 PM the campus sites will be filled with conversations, info and 'gezelligheid' as the Dutch would say. We would like to invite you to the Fontys Welcome Party!
