UPDATE: The application for the ISN Winter Introduction has been closed. Do you still wish to join? The sign-up form for the late registration will be published soon!

Welcome to all new students in Amsterdam, a lovely city with a rich history, culture, and traditions. Studying in Amsterdam will not only enrich your knowledge by broadening your horizon but also enable us to build lifelong friendships with students from all around the world. ISN will help you with this by bringing you together with our unforgettable activities, events and trips. We hope that this way you can get the most out of your stay!


ISN Winter Introduction Week

What better way to discover Amsterdam than during an 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 & the universities. These three intensive days will lay the foundation for your entire stay here. It is a good opportunity to make friends while engaging in interesting activities. 

During the week there will be numerous things to do including a city tour, a crash course Dutch, workshops, a sports day, a pubcrawl, and parties! Participants will be divided in groups guided by coaches (students who already know Amsterdam). The week will be a great introduction to the Amsterdam student life.

For a glimpse of our previous introduction week, check our video:
