Utrecht University introduction week
Are you new to Utrecht? Then you will want to feel at home in the city as quickly as possible. The best way to get to know the city is to take part in the Utrecht Introduction Week (in Dutch: Utrechtse Introductie Tijd, or UIT).
UIT 2013 will be held mid-August, before the faculty orientation programme. By taking part you will make sure you are as prepared as possible for student life by the time you start your degree programme! More information on the UIT website.
