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.
Below you can see all the activities in which you will participate:
On Monday, August 23rd:
Only the International students are expected at 9 a.m. in the central hall of building R3, Rachelsmolen 1 Eindhoven.
On this day, the staff of the International Office will inform you about diploma validation, studying at Fontys, and your study period in the Netherlands. The end of the day will be around 4 p.m.
On Tuesday, August 24th: We will start at 9 a.m. with a walk-in/reception of all National and International students. After an official reception by the management, you will meet your buddy, mentor, and fellow classmates. There will be a lot of time to get to know each other and ask any questions you may have, and we will have a lot of fun together! The introduction is the perfect opportunity to get to know your new classmates and often friendships are made here for the rest of your school career. This day is mandatory, so make sure you are there!
On Wednesday, August 25th at 12 a.m., the third (mandatory) introductory day starts in the Fontys building R4. This day is filled with lots of fun activities, music, and games. At the end of the day, you will have dinner with your new classmates at a foodtruck on Campus (at your own expense) and in the evening we will have fun with a silent disco.

It is expected that the current restrictions on the opening up of buildings and the provision of physical education will apply for a longer period of time. We therefore assume a blended-learning offer, a mix of physical and online education. This mix may vary per training course. When distributing the possibilities for physical education, priority is given to the first-year students because of their connection with the course.

The Fontys introduction week is called Purple and will take place from 23 to 27 August 2021. The programme starts with getting acquainted with fellow students and teachers at our location on the Campus Rachelsmolen. There you will form your own introductory group (including 'intro parents').
The Purple Introduction Week is all about getting to know each other. Getting to know classmates, getting to know the study programme, getting to know the city where the new students will be studying and, of course, getting to know the Fontys community!
Just like previous years, we are planning to make the Purple Introduction Week just as beautiful and fantastic as every year, of course within the measures that are in place at that time. All the 'new' measures will create a challenge, but Purple is motivated to make it a great week again!
During the introduction week a lot of photos and videos will be made. Ranging from selfies and videos on a mobile phone by fellow students to photos and videos by professional photographers and filmmakers. By participating in the introduction week you agree that the photos and/or videos will be published (on social media, flyers, advertisements and websites).
