Introduction programmes for Master, Exchange and bridging students

14-18 August 2023

Introduction TU Delft
The Introduction Programme is designed to help give you the best possible start to your studies in Delft. It is a fun, but intensive programme that introduces you to TU Delft, life in Delft, and to the multicultural student life that awaits you.

It is also a good opportunity to make new friends. Together with students from all over the world and from other faculties, as a team you will get to know each other, TU Delft's study culture and the academic skills you will need during your studies, which will start at a fast pace from September. During the introduction programme, you will learn skills such as project-based working and participate in workshops and lectures. You will also get a good impression of the many facilities and support that TU Delft offers to students. You can also become acquainted with social and (multi-)cultural student life in Delft during various activities.

This year’s Introduction Programme (IP) offers three core elements as a part of a comprehensive programme for students from all around the globe. These elements are: IP Social app, the IP Brightspace course, and the 5 day On Campus programme.

This programme has been painstakingly put together to assure a kickstart to your studies in Delft. Furthermore, your faculty and/or programme offers more specific introductions. You will be informed on those elements by the faculty.

TU Delft recommends you participate in all three elements of the Introduction Programme. Should you not be able to participate in the On Campus days, the other two elements and the three Q&A sessions offer a lot of information to further your start at TU Delft.

We look forward to meeting you during one or more elements of the Introduction Programme.

See you soon!
 

IP Social App

The first part of the Introduction Programme is the Social app. The aim of this app is to provide you the opportunity to connect with your peers online as well as providing you information about Living in Delft, Student life, TU Delft campus, and the programme of the On Campus Introduction Programme itself. Within the app you will also be kept up to date with news items and events, so make sure to activate your account, when receiving the invitation to join. You will be invited to activate your account in July by email.

IP Brightspace cursus

Starts beginning of August!
Brightspace is TU Delft's collaborative learning environment and is used for almost all courses. The Introduction Programme Brightspace Course not only helps you to get familiar with this system, but also helps you get acquainted with the academic skills and study culture at TU Delft. It also contains information on the grading system, student charter, code of conduct, laptop project and on resources students can use while enrolled at TU Delft; e.g. Student IT Desks, the Library, study spaces, student well-being, academic counsellors, psychologists, workshops and much more.

On 3 August, we will host a Q&A session to explain how to get in, and how the system works. Access to the Brightspace system will be activated on 1 or 2 August.

Q&A Sessions

Before the start of your studies in summer, we are organising three online Q&A sessions. IP students and TU Delft student ambassadors will talk about topics such as what to expect from the IP summer 2023 with information about the sleep-in and the Social App, life in Delft and what is expected of you to study at TU Delft. You can also ask them questions and, as 'experience experts', they will answer your question.

If you don't have any questions, listening to the sessions will also be able to contribute to your knowledge about studying and living in Delft. The sessions will be in English.

Session 1: 18 July 2023, 15:00-16:00 CET
Session 2: 25 July  2023, 15:00-16:00 CET
Session 3: 3 August 2023, 15.00-16.00 CET

The link to the sessions can be found below and in the Social App.

How can I participate?

If you are new to TU Delft and have applied for a Master Exchange or switching programme, you can expect two invitations by email at the beginning of July; one for activation of the Social App and one for registering for the 5-day On Campus IP.
