Introduction activities

To give you a kick-start at the TU/e we offer introduction activities to all new Bachelor and Master students.

A large-scale survey among international students at TU/e showed that they are very pleased with the practical assistance they receive when they arrive at TU/e and experience shows clearly that students get a better start to their studies by participating in the Intro’s.

These introductions activities are only available at the start of semester 1 of the Academic year. Students starting in in semester 2 will be invited to the International Office after arrival in Eindhoven to arrange enrollment and other administrative matters. For Exchange students, there is a seperate activity.

For students starting their Bachelor program

The Intro 2018 is obligatory for all new international students enrolling in semester 1 of all TU/e Bachelor programs and will take place from Friday 17th August until Friday, August 24th, 2018.

The first Friday, August 17th, will be about administrative matters for International students, for example: arrange enrollment, bank account and insurances.

From Monday, August 20th, all new Bachelor students, including all international and Dutch students will take part in activities which are designed to introduce all new students in Eindhoven and studying at TU/e.
