You will embark on this adventure with around 5500 other first-year Bachelor students. You will be divided into a group with approximately sixteen fellow students and two experienced mentors—senior students who already know their way around the VU campus and Amsterdam. You can choose between going all in, including an evening programme (5 days) or participating in a shorter introduction programme with a focus on getting with VU Amsterdam and your studies (2 days).
