The new academic year starts in September... But before your studies start, you'll first take part in the introduction week. That's Purple 2021! During this introduction week (Monday 23 to Friday 27 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.
