Official UvA Introduction days

The Introduction days are a great way to get to know the UvA, explore Amsterdam and meet other students before you start your studies. The UvA offers three different introduction programmes, for students who start a Bachelor’s, for international Master's students, and students who join an Exchange programme.

What introduction programme can I join?

 

Intreeweek

For Bachelor’s students at the UvA (not applicable for students at the Amsterdam University College - AUC).

The Intreeweek is the official introduction week for Dutch and international students doing a Bachelor’s programme at the UvA. Get to know the UvA, your fellow students and Amsterdam!

 

Get in Touch

For international (pre)Master's student at the UvA or a current first year international Bachelor’s student who has not been in the Netherlands yet to start their study on campus.

Join this introduction programme to become acquainted with the university, the city and your fellow students. The programme will also help you prepare for your studies and make the most of your time at the UvA.

 

ESN Winter Introduction 2022

For all international UvA and AUAS students starting in February 2022 (except for students enrolled for the ABS Executive Programme, AUC and Oncampus).

This introduction programme is organised by the Erasmus Student Network Amsterdam and provides exchange students with an amazing start in Amsterdam by experiencing all the essential ins and outs the city and the university have to offer!

How do I apply?

Once you have been admitted to the UvA, you'll be invited to register for one of the introduction programmes. The invitations will be sent in July.

Do you want to coach new students?

Are you already studying at the UvA? This is your chance to relive the introduction programme as a coach! All of our introduction programmes rely on students as coaches or crew. So please sign up for:

  • ESN Introduction (link will appear soon)
  • Intreeweek

Will I also get an introduction to my study or faculty?

Apart from these introduction programmes for all UvA students, your Faculty will organise a mandatory introduction day or days. It will be focused on practical study information, and is a great opportunity to meet your fellow students, and the staff and teachers of the Faculty.

You will receive an invitation for this particular Faculty introduction from your own study programme. In case you have questions about this Faculty introduction, please contact the education desk of your programme directly. To do so, visit the main page of your study programme by selecting from this overview, and go to the Contact page there.
