Your introduction week: Business and Economics programmes

Do you want to get off to a good start with your new study programme and in your new city? Do you like to party and make lifelong friendships? Then read on and take part in the Purple Introduction Week! From Monday 22 August to Friday 26 August, we will be camping with all the Fontys International Business School study programmes at the Purple campsite on Sportspark Vrijenbroek, near to the Venlo Campus.


We have prepared a fantastic programme again this year! The first two days there will be plenty of opportunity to get to know your new fellow students at and around the campsite. On Wednesday you will get to know the city of Venlo and on Thursday you will get to know the Fontys community at the Purple festival. Here you can find the global programme for each day. A week beforehand, you will receive all detailed information.

Monday is the first day you get to know your fellow students! During the day we take it easy. We get to know each other, prepare the campsite and you can meet the study association Omnia (without engagement). In the evening it is of course time for a good party at the campsite!
We wake up relaxed and for the more active ones there is a programme in the morning. In the afternoon there will be sports and games. In the evening there is another good party at the campsite.

Today you will get to know the city of Venlo. In the morning you will start calmly. After lunch we all go to the centre of Venlo to participate in the VID (Venlo Introduction Day) together with the students of all the other courses in Venlo. You will get to know everything the centre has to offer. Pubs and restaurants, associations, culture and of course just the cosiness of the Burgundian town of Venlo. In the evening you can get to know the pubs in the city centre.

If you don't want to participate in the complete introduction camp, there is the possibility to only participate in the VID. You can indicate this on the registration form.

After lunch, we all get into the bus and head for Tilburg! Tilburg is one of the other cities where Fontys is located and this year the Purple Festival will be organised here. Here you can meet the Fontys community and all its students from Venlo, Eindhoven and Tilburg. The festival has in- and outdoor area's and no less than 6 stages! At the end of the evening, the bus will take you back to the campsite in Venlo.
