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!
