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 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!
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).
