All Bachelor programmes will be presented to the students during the Open day. The day is divided into four time periods: 9.00-10.30, 11.15-12.45, 13.30-15.00 and 15.45-17.15. Most programmes will give presentations on their programmes in two or three of these time frames. Provided that there is enough space, all information events will take place in the buildings where the programmes are located. You will receive information about the study programme, you can view laboratories, libraries and spaces for practica. You can attend trial lectures and speak to teachers and alumni.
