Online Pre-Departure Weeks

What are Online Pre-Departure Weeks?

Pre-Departure weeks are a series of webinars and online sessions to help prepare students admitted for a Bachelor, Master or Exchange programme as best as possible for their arrival in Utrecht! Participation in these sessions is completely optional and important information will always also be communicated to you via email.

Why should you join?

  • Hear the experiences of current students
  • Get practical information about different topics such as:
    • Housing
    • Student Life
    • Paying tuition fees
  • Ask any questions you might have

How can you join?

If you have been admitted to start a programme at Utrecht University this Fall, you will receive an email with a link to register for the Pre-Departure Weeks. You will also receive updates about events and sessions that have passed as well as upcoming sessions which you can sign up for!
