Experience a great start to meeting new friends, seeing the city of Utrecht, and getting to know Utrecht University. Besides that, you will have the opportunity to get in touch with companies that are eager to meet you. If you are enrolled to either Innovation Sciences (IS) or Sustainable Business and Innovation (SBI) you can sign up for the introduction programme. The events will take place in the first week of the academic year. Every activity is planned around the university’s schedule, so don’t worry about having to skip lectures!
