VU Amsterdam is looking forward to welcoming all new international exchange students in August 2023! Your first days and weeks in Amsterdam will be filled with new experiences, new people and a few practical considerations too. That is why we will organise the following:
- Practical Matters Day - 22 and 23 August. Free of cost.
The Practical Matters Days offers you the perfect opportunity to easily arrange practical matters in a short period of time. We do advise students to arrive a few days earlier, in order to settle in before the activities start.
- How to make it at VU Amsterdam - 24 August. Free of cost.
During How to make it at VU Amsterdam, you will learn more about e.g. culture shock, grading culture in the Netherlands, and the Dutch language.
- Social programme - 25, 28 and 29 August. Costs: 25 euros
Together with a group that consists of Exchange and Semester in Amsterdam students, you will discover all the hotspots on campus and in Amsterdam. You can expect an invitation email from mid-June onwards. Registration is possible via the link in this email until 16 August 05:00pm at the latest. Do not wait too long to register, because full = full!
Attending the introduction programme is not mandatory, however we strongly advise all exchange students to participate in the entire programme.
Photos may be taken during the Introduction Days for PR purposes. By registering for the programme, you agree to this.
