VU Amsterdam is looking forward to welcoming all new international exchange students in August 2020! Normally, the introduction programme consists of:
1. Arrival days. During these two days you can arrange all practical matters, for example registering at the municipality or picking up your student card.
2. Introduction activities. The International Office organizes several activities, such as social events to meet other students or workshops around the theme 'How to make it at the VU'.
However, due to the Covid-19 (Corona) measures taken by the Dutch government, no events are allowed until 1 September 2020. This means that the Arrival Days and Introduction activities as we would have liked to offer to you, cannot be organized on campus. We are actively searching for ways to enable you to get to know your fellow students this coming August, to get to know VU Amsterdam and of course the city of Amsterdam! Together with all colleagues and students within the university, the study-, student- and sports associations and cultural organizations in Amsterdam, we will make sure that you will feel welcome and ready to embark on the next phase in your life.
More information will follow soon.
