The Introduction Committee is responsible for organizing the Introduction Period at the beginning of each semester and welcoming all new international students to Utrecht! The first introduction period takes place at the beginning of September and the second introduction in February. The preparations for the introduction in September start before most of the other committees are even put together and the committee members in the introduction committee of semester 1 work hard during their summer break in order to give the new international students a great start of their stay in Utrecht! In the second semester less students arrive in Utrecht than in the first semester, however also these students will feel more than welcome in Utrecht in the second introduction period!

The introductions period consists of an Introduction day to get a quick introduction into Utrecht and an Introduction week to make new friends and experience all the different events ESN Utrecht has to offer. The Introduction period is the best way to make new friends and get to know Utrecht!

This year we accepted the challenge to increase the amount of people that can join our Introduction period in order to give more international students the opportunity to start their stay with this great experience. There are many different new events you don’t want to miss out on!
