Introduction programmes for Master’s, Exchange and bridging students

February 2023

The Introduction Programme is designed to help give you a good start to your studies in Delft. The Introduction Programme introduces you to the university, to life in Delft, and to the multicultural student life that awaits you.

This year’s Introduction Programme (IP) offers three core elements as a part of a comprehensive programme for students from all around the globe. This programme has been put together to assure a kick-start to your studies in Delft.  These elements are:  
two Live online Q&A sessions, the Brightspace course, and the On Campus Introduction Programme.
Furthermore your faculty and/or programme offers more specific introductions. You will be informed on those element by the faculty.

TU Delft recommends you to participate in all three elements of the Introduction Programme. However, if circumstances prevent you from being on campus during the 5 days of the on Campus Introduction Programme,  we encourage you to utilise the online elements which have been created to help you with the transition to TU Delft.

We are looking forward to meeting you during the Introduction Programme, during online sessions and/or during the On Campus programme.

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

Q&A Sessions 

Before the start of your studies in Spring, we will organize two live Q&A sessions. 
IP student assistents and student ambassadors of TU Delft, will talk about topics and allows the audience to ask the speaker directly about the question they are curious of.  If you don’t have any questions, listening to the sessions will surely contribute to your knowledge about studying and living in Delft.

Brightspace is TU Delft's collaborative learning environment and is used in 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. You can also find information on Living in Delft, the rich student life and TU Delft campus in the Brightspace course.
