Introduction programmes for Master’s, Exchange and bridging students

19 - 23 August 2019

The introduction programme gives you the best start to your studies in Delft. You don’t want to miss it!

It’s an intense and enjoyable week giving you a full introduction to TU Delft, the Netherlands and the multicultural student life which awaits you, while making friends for life.

You will work in a group with your fellow students from across the university and around the world. Each group has their own coach – a current TU Delft student who can give you all the inside knowledge on life at TU Delft. Getting to know each other and making friends is just the beginning, as you encounter the TU Delft study culture and gain practical experience of the academic skills you will need as soon as your studies begin.

Evenings are filled with a varied, optional programme of social and cultural events.

You can make the most of social and cultural opportunities and find out what you can get involved in during your time at TU Delft.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the Introduction Programme.

Are you looking forward to your introduction?
