International Students

The Utrecht Introduction Time (UIT) is an introduction week for freshmen of the University Utrecht, Hogeschool Utrecht and the participating higher educational institutions. the UIT is mainly visited by Dutch students, but all international students are more than welcome. We even have special mentors with experience of guiding people trough Utrecht in English. If you would like to join an introduction week specifically for international students, you can visit the website of the University UtrechtHogeschool Utrecht or ESN Utrecht.

The UIT is an introduction week organised in name of Utrecht University and Hogeschool Utrecht and lasts for five days. Every year in august more than 4000 students participate in this citywide introduction. During the week the students are divided in groups of approximately fifteen students and are guided by two senior students. The goal of the week is to introduce students to everything Utrecht has to offer regarding the student life.

Joining the UIT is a great way to get to know more about the Dutch student life and meet a lot of new friends! See you at the UIT this summer.
