Introduction days

Twice a year, Avans University of Applied Sciences organises an introduction programme for new international students who have been officially accepted to an English-taught study programme at Avans. This introduction programme provides you with lots of useful information that you may need as a new international student in the Netherlands and at Avans.

For the upcoming spring semester, starting February, the introduction days will be held on the 26th and 27th of January, in the week before the start of the semester. All students who have been formally admitted to Avans will receive more information and an invitation to register for the introduction days in their email linked to the application at Avans before the end of December. Don’t forget to also check your spam folder regularly. 

Please note that the introduction programme is compulsory.


Once you have been accepted to a study programme, you will receive an invitation email from the International Office, before the end of December. This email includes a detailed overview of the introduction programme. The 26th is our advised arrival day and on the 27th there will be a (physical) informative and social programme.

If you have been guaranteed accommodation through Avans, you will sign your lease and are able to receive your keys during the Introduction Days.
