The induction programme is designed to give students valuable information and orientation around the University of Amsterdam campus and the city.
Towards the end of the week, students are brought together for a series of induction talks, opening with a welcome from the Centre Head and followed by information about attendance, welfare, exams, the centre IT system and academic introductions.
We wrap up with a organised social event, providing an ideal opportunity for staff and students to meet one another in a relaxed environment.
