Your introduction week

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.

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.

We advise you to visit the page 'Your start in times of Corona'

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 in Tilburg. 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!

No, every course has its own programme and also takes part in central activities (such as the city day and the Purple Festival). Check the programme on this site to see how your intro will look like

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).
