Introduction and Orientation Bachelor Admitted Students

The faculty organises its own orientation activities (for all international students of the faculty) in the first week of each semester. Faculty introduction activities are mandatory and are very important in terms of being able to study here at ESSB. During this introduction the digital learning system of the faculty will be explained to you as well as the use of the library. In addition, you will receive a lot of relevant information you will need being an ESSB student.

Orientation/ introduction activities will also be organised by the central level of the university for all new (international) students: in August for the fall semester and in January for the spring semester. Please make sure to be in the Netherlands during that the days of the orientation / introduction activities in order not to miss these activities which are considered to be useful. They are a great opportunity to meet new friends and learn new things. NB The university introduction is not obligatory.
