Welcome to Amsterdam everyone! At the start of every semester we organize an introduction weekend for the incoming international, exchange and Erasmus students at the VU University Amsterdam. We organize this separately from the university. This weekend is packed with fun activities and parties and the best way to get to know people, the city and your new friends! You will be led through this weekend in group by two highly motivated coaches (who can be dutch or international like you).
Check out the program and the promo video below and get your tickets here!
- Word of welcome: During the word of welcome our lovely president Michael will speak some inspirational words and explain the weekend. But most important, this is where YOU will be able to decide on where our most epic trip of the semester will go to!
