General information

Welcome to Saxion!

On this website you can find all information available about your start at Saxion.

Buddy family
As soon as we know your arrival details we will connect you to a Buddy family. A Buddy family is a small group of Saxion students who already study at Saxion for some time and who will guide you through your first weeks at Saxion and its surroundings.

Things to arrange as soon as you arrive
As you are an International student you need to finish some important procedures such as collecting your residence permit, registering at the City Hall, opening a bank account and going to the GGD (community health services) for a TBC check. The Buddy family will make sure you complete all these procedures and will also introduce you to the city and student life.

We will also schedule intake meetings in which we inform you about the above mentioned topics and more, so you will be well prepared when you start with your study. Please click here for more information (a new browser window will open).

For information about pick up days, the Saxion bus and travelling to your accommodation, check the arrival information.

We advise you to arrive on time to join this week as this the moment to meet fellow students and to attend fun events. The HOI week only takes places in August.
