Introduction Week International Students

No events at VU Amsterdam until 1 September!

Due to the Covid-19 (Corona) measures taken by the Dutch government today, no events are allowed until 1 September 2020. This means that the VU Introduction Days as we know them and would have liked to offer to you, cannot go ahead this year. We are currently exploring alternative scenarios and will inform you once we know more.


VU Amsterdam is looking forward to welcoming all new international Master's students in August 2020!

During your first days in Amsterdam, the International Office will arrange several activities in order to help you become acquainted with the city of Amsterdam and the university campus, to get to know your fellow students and, of course, to have fun! Our introduction team is working hard to put together an engaging and informative programme especially for you. The Arrival Days will take place on 17 and 18 August, followed by the Introduction days from 19 until 25 August.

The Arrival Day and Introduction Day are offered by VU International Office and are free of charge for international Master's students.

Note: the information on this page is only meant for international Master's students who start their degree programme in the first semester of academic year 2020-2021.
