VU Introduction days

25 August 2021 - 31 August 2021

The VU Introduction Days are the ideal way to get to know the university, your fellow students, Amsterdam and all you need to know about studying here.

Starting university in a different country can make you a bit nervous, but you are not alone. You will embark on this adventure together with about 4,000 other first-year students. You will be divided into a group of fifteen fellow students and two experienced mentors: senior students who already know their way around VU Amsterdam, and in the city of Amsterdam as well. You can choose between a complete programme or the short version of the introduction.

Please note that you can no longer sign up for the VU Introduction Days, registration is closed.

  • Feeling at home in just five days
    Get to know your mentorgroup and the campus and try out a few sports on e.g. Campus Uilenstede. Get to know all student associations in the field of sports, culture, religion and fun that VU Amsterdam and our city have to offer. You can visit various museums, but also take a cruise on the canals. During the Comedy Night you visit one of the theatres in the city and you end the week festively with a show!
  • Want to participate in 2021?
    In 2021, the VU Introduction Days will be on 25, 26, 27, 30 and 31 August.
    Please sign up no later than 16 August 5 p.m. (CET) for the 5-day programme and no later than 18 August for the 2-day programme via the link in the invitation you received by email or on this webpage. Keep your VUnetID at hand while registering. You should have already received your VUnetID by email.
  • Also keep an eye on our VU Introduction Days App, available through the App store and Google Play Store.
  • The short version: prepare for your studies in two days
    You can also only participate on Monday 30 and Tuesday 31 August: you will then get a tour of the VU campus, get to know your study programme and there is an optional programme where you can choose two workshops, for example Smart study or Ready for the language test.
