Feeling at home on campus and in the city in three days

During the VU Introduction Days you will meet your fellow students for the first time and find out everything you need to know about your degree programme. You will prepare for your time as a student by taking part in interesting workshops and you’ll be attending an online concert or comedy show. The virtual tour will show you all the hotspots on campus - from sports and culture to restaurants and the best study areas - you name it, we have it, here at VU Amsterdam. You will also become acquainted with all the study, student and sports associations Amsterdam has to offer. And of course, as always, we will conclude the event with a smashing party - join us online and dance to the best beats imaginable!
