To help you get started in Amsterdam, the University of Amsterdam and the Faculty of Humanities will organise several mandatory and optional introduction meetings before the start of the semester.
During the individual Start appointment, you will be able to collect your student ID card and check the status of your enrolment.
At the Faculty introduction meeting, you will receive practical information about studying at the Faculty of Humanities and in Amsterdam. It is also a great way to meet other new students at the Faculty!
You will be invited to the introduction meeting by email.
Most programmes organise a programme-specific introduction during the Intreeweek. If your programme is among those that do, you will receive an invitation from your programme coordinator separately.

NOBODY by Sophia van der Putten
'NOBODY is a solo, a physical and visually vivid performance grounded in the personal experience of dissociation of performer and dance-/theatre maker Sophia van der Putten. Dissociation can be described as an estrangement of the own body and reality, which causes physical, mental and social detachment.'
NOBODY is created in collaboration with the artistic team consisting of composer/sound designer Cesi Nolten (1981), scenographer Juhee Hahm (1987), and dramaturg Julia van der Putten (1994).
Followed by drinks, and meet & greet Bachelor's and Master's students
Details on other programme-specific introductions will follow shortly.
The Intreeweek is a great way to get to know Amsterdam, the UvA and your fellow UvA students. The Intreeweek is open to international and Dutch students for a small fee. Each year, a team of dedicated students organise this major event to kick off the new year. You can find details on the Intreeweek website. This year's Intreeweek takes place from 26-30 August.
