ISN winter introduction week

From the 1st until the 3rd of February ISN will organize the winter introduction week. This week is designed to help newly arrived exchange and international students to meet each other and discover our beautiful city of Amsterdam. It is a good opportunity to make friends while engaging in interesting activities. During the week there will be numerous things to do including parties, a sports day and workshops. Participants will be divided in groups led by students who already know Amsterdam. These will be your guides. The week will be a good introduction to the Amsterdam student life.

Beneath we have created a program overview, although we are still busy organizing, it gives you an idea how the week will look. A link to an application form will be posted soon. Keep an eye on your mail for more application information and check our website for updates.

We very much hope to see you in February.
