Focus

This year's Introduction Days might be different to other years, but we will make it an unforgettable time nonetheless. And while it will be partly done online, we will meet in person (yay!) as much as possible. The exact time spent on each component will depend on the government guidelines at that point in time. Do you have questions about the Introduction Days? There's a good chance you'll find the answer on this page!

What are the dates for the Introduction Days?
Make a note in your diary! This year the Saxion Introduction Days will be held on Tuesday 24th, Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th of August. 

Will there be any in-person/offline activities this year? 
Yes, definitely! #buthow? We will try our utmost to organise small-scale in-person activities. Of course we will follow the guidelines and any social distancing regulations that are in force at that time.

What happens in the online/virtual component?
The Introduction Days will be a combination of online and in-person events.  A range of activities are run on the online platform. As soon as we know more, we will share this with you. You will also be able to find useful information on your degree programme, your city and much, much more! But you better believe us, you're in for a big surprise! 
 
Will I get to know my classmates during my introduction? 
You will definitely meet your classmates during the Introduction Days! You will be introduced to your classmates and your study career counsellor in person in the Saxion buildings. And should that really not be possible, we will organise a range of different activities on the online platform so you can still meet each other.
 
Is participation in the Introduction Days mandatory?
You don't want to miss the start of your new adventure, do you? Your degree programme has a mandatory introduction part, which we do expect you to attend. The general component of the Introduction Days is optional. But it will be great fun to participate in activities with your fellow students, and it is a great opportunity to make friends!

Do I need to register for the Introduction Days? 
You do not need to register for the Introduction Days this year. We do ask you to register for the in-person activities that take place outside of Saxion buildings. How? We will post more information on this as soon as possible. So keep an eye on this page and the Introduction Days page.
 
How much does the Introduction Days cost? 
Taking part is completely free this year!  

I don't know which school my degree programme belongs to. How can I find out? 
You can look this up on the Saxion website, using the search function at the top right of the page. 

My start date is in February/ I'm doing a part-time programme. Do I have to register for the Introduction Days? 
The degree programmes often organise a specific introduction meeting for their part-time students and those starting in February. You don't have to register for this.
