To help you get started in Amsterdam, the University of Amsterdam and your study programme will organise introductory meetings before the start of the semester. The programme introductory meetings will take place in the first week of classes, from 6 to 10 September.
Most programmes will be organising a programme-specific orientation during the first week of lectures (6 to 10 September).
For information about the introduction of your programme, go to the Introduction or Orientation page of your programme in Canvas.
The Intreeweek is the official introduction week of the University of Amsterdam and will take place from 30 August to 3 September. You can find more information on www.intreeweek.nl.
Learning to find your way at the Faculty of Humanities in a fun way
The Faculty of Humanities will be hosting the Warm Welcome Week for new first-year Bachelor’s and Master’s students as well as second-year students for whom this week could not take place last summer because of the coronavirus situation. During this week, you will get to know our faculty in a festive way. The programme will not consist only of practical matters but will devote lots of attention to social activities in which you can get to know your fellow students, such as (city) walks, jam sessions, cooking workshops and yoga classes. You will have the opportunity to discuss the day's events and recover your breath over a drink and a bite.
The Warm Welcome Week was planned for the week of 13 September. Because social distancing rules by the Dutch government are still in place for non-educational activities until at least 20 September, the Warm Welcome Week has been postponed. Keep an eye on this page and your email for the latest information.
