VU international Master's Introduction

The international Master's introduction is the ideal way to get to know the university, your fellow students, the city of Amsterdam and our university.

Note:  the information on this page is only meant for international Master's and Pre-Master's students who will start their degree programme in the first semester of academic year 2021-2022. The information about the second semester will be added at a later time. For the other introduction pages, please see the pages below:

The international Master's Introduction took place on 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30 and 31 August 2021 in Amsterdam. Note: this differs from the dates for the Bachelor's introduction!

What you will be doing:

  • You will become acquainted with your degree programme and fellow international students
  • You will find out more about the countless associations you can join
  • You will discover all the hotspots on campus and in Amsterdam itself
  • You will take part in interesting workshops

This summer, we will still have to deal with COVID-19 measures. We will do our utmost to organise a fun programme, but it may be that we have to adapt it to the measures in place at that time. We will make sure to provide self-tests before and during the introduction period (self-testing is voluntary).

The online part of the international Master's introduction
Students who registered for the online part will get access to the online Canvas environment on Friday 20 August. Please check your e-mail address for the invite! In Canvas you will find lots of information and links to the online events and the online workshops. Every morning, the information for that day will become available.

The physical part of the international Master's introduction 
We will also organise some small-scale physical events with 1.5 metres distance. For these events we use the first come, first served principle, because COVID-19 regulations don't allow us to welcome everyone. Registration for these physical events has already closed, and unfortunately there is currently a waiting list.
