Introduction Programme for international students

Introduction Programme

All new international students are welcomed to TU Delft with a special introduction programme. This mandatory programme consists of an online preparation before arrival and an intensive introduction on campus at TU Delft during the last two weeks of August: 

  • Before arrival: 
    As a member of the online community ‘Delftulip’ you’ll find all information on practical preparation, enrolment at TU Delft and life in the Netherlands. In this online community you get in touch with other international students. We will deal with most of your questions with chat sessions on specific issues and the FAQ section. 

    You will receive an invitation to join Delftulip as soon as you are (conditionally) admitted. 

  • Meet & Greet at Schiphol Airport 
    If you’ve indicated that you want a pick-up from Schiphol Airport to TU Delft during the Meet & Greet days, we will welcome you in the Arrivals hall and guide you to a bus that will take you to Delft.  

  • Registration 
    During the Introduction Programme, a temporary one-stop shop is set up where all necessary official affairs can be taken care of. You will receive an invitation to  make a personal appointment on a certain date and time. At the appointment, you will be able to take care of the following: 

    • registration as a citizen of Delft, The Hague, or Schiedam; 
    • information regarding your Dutch bank account; 
    • registration as a student of TU Delft;  
    • insurance check of your personal insurances.

  • Introduction Programme 
    Finding your way in a new country, meeting fellow students and being confronted with a new culture and a new language is a great experience and very exciting. When you have arrived in Delft, an enthusiastic team of fellow Dutch and International students will be there to introduce you to: 

    • The campus and student facilities; 
    • Teaching methods and cultural differences; 
    • Social life and exploring the city of Delft. 
    • You will be assigned a coach, who will guide you through this extensive Introduction Programme.

    The Introduction Programme also includes an introduction at your faculty, an introduction to the ICT infrastructure at TU Delft and the configuration of your laptop.
