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.
