Leaving your home and going to University can be quite overwhelming, especially when you are moving to another country. That is why we organize an extensive introduction programme that takes several days. At the Faculty, you will be introduced to the IT-systems we use, you will learn how to register for course units and examinations and how to order books in the University Library. The best part of the programme is the introduction programme organised by your mentors and the faculty's student association Gerardus van der Leeuw. The contents of this particular part of the programme will remain a secret, it is something you have to experience!


  • Friday 3 - Saturday 4 September: Introduction programme by mentors and introduction committee Gerardus van der Leeuw
  • Monday 6 September : ICT information and introduction to the Faculty
  • Thursday 9 September: Opening Academic Year with barbecue and bingo by Gerardus van der Leeuw
  • Tuesday 14 September: First mentor meeting Religious Studies

All first-year students will receive an invitation for the introduction programme by mail. In case you did not receive a letter from the introduction committee, please contact
