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.

Let's stay connected

Staying connected in these times is sometimes quite a challenge. Now that you are going to study you might have been looking forward to many new contacts, parties and other things that are part of a student's life. On the page 'Let's stay connected' we show all kinds of fun initiatives in the field of sports, social events and offers for help. Take a look and take advantage of it. You really don't have to study alone now!
