Dear prospective student,

Due to the COVID-19 measures that have to be taken into account, there will be an Alternative Introduction Camp organized by the study association. The purpose of the introduction camp (ICE camp) is to get acquainted with your new fellow first year students, the study association and older students in a nice and informal way. The camp is a great way to dive into your study year after the summer break, and provides a great opportunity to make new friends and get more information about your studies!

We have endeavoured to let this alternative-camp fulfill the same purposes! Here is a little bit about the camp.

The alternative introduction camp will consist of Friday 4th and Saturday 5th of September, in which the afternoon and the evening will be filled with activities at a location in Groningen. This camp does not include sleeping. This alternative camp is not mandatory but it is strongly recommended to join.

A pleasant and enjoyable weekend is guaranteed, so sign up so you can start off your study years the best possible way! Please do so in time before university starts, as in 1st of September. For more information check out this website in the upcoming month and in case of any queries don’t hesitate to contact us at
