Experience a great start to your study by 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 in 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!
Most of the introduction activities will take place on campus, you can see the programme for the week here. Participating in the introduction week costs € 22,50, you can sign up for this week through the ‘Join us’ link at the bottom of this page. Due to the corona measures the programme for the week is subject to change. By subscribing for the introduction week, you will also have to become a member of the study association, NWSV Helix. A membership costs a one-time € 10, which will make you a member until you graduate! This means free coffee and tea, cheap snacks, soda and beer, weekly Friday Afternoon Drinks, lots of activities and of course your daily dose of our ‘Helixsfeer’ (it’s similar to ‘gezellig’, but better). See the calendar in the sidebar for an overview of all the coming activities!
If you already are a Helixmember, you can let us know through the subscription form. Also, if you cannot participate in our introduction programme, but do want to become a Helixmember, that’s also possible.
Helix is an association by and for students of the three innovation-related studies: Science and innovation management (BSc), Innovation Sciences (MSc) and Sustainable Business and Innovation (MSc). Helix’ goals are to keep improving the quality of these studies; to provide a solid bridge between its members and career opportunities; and to nurture friendships through social gatherings and parties. Helix organises around 160 activities per year, from Friday Afternoon Drinks to wild parties and from company visits to summer and winter trips!
Are you about to start a (new) life in Utrecht, or do you simply want to meet your future fellow students? What are you waiting for:
Hope to see you there!
