At the start of each semester, we organise an Intro Week to welcome newly arrived international students to Utrecht and to celebrate the start of a new semester. As a mentor, you get to guide a small group of students through a week filled with fun activities and help them form a tight group of friends in their new city! Together with your co-mentor, you can introduce them to all the quirks of the Dutch culture and share your best tips on how to make the most out of the amazing Dutch student life.

The Introduction Week program takes place during the evenings on weekdays to make sure nobody misses any of their study commitments. Please note that the Introduction Week is currently planned to take place physically but if conditions change, it might need to be switched to being online. In either scenario, besides bonding at activities you will get to know your mentor group through a series of unique challenges and fun activities!

If you have any questions about being a Introduction Week mentor, please contact the Integration Coordinator at
