FAQ Introduction week 2022

The 2022 INTRO will be held from Monday 29 August to Thursday 1 September. One part of the INTRO is an introduction to your degree programme. This is referred to as the Degree Programme Introduction or School Days. In addition to this programme, there is a general INTRO programme in each city for all students.

The former is specific to your degree programme. This component is generally offered on Monday and Tuesday during the INTRO. However, not all degree programmes have scheduled activities on all days.

Where can you find the schedule? Consult the Starter’s Information for your degree programme. In addition to this, Saxion also offers a general INTRO. This is organised separately in each city for ALL new students, regardless of their degree programme. You will find the programme for each city on the Introduction page.

Your degree programme kicks off with a mandatory introduction, during which you will be given important information about your degree programme. This is a very important part of the INTRO, so you should definitely not miss it!

The general part of the INTRO is intended purely for your enjoyment and to get you settled into your new life as a student. This is not compulsory, but it will be great fun to participate in activities with your fellow students, and it is a great opportunity to make friends!

Yes, you need to register for the general part of the INTRO. Precise information about how to register and where you can do this is provided for each city individually on the Introduction page.

The INTRO is taking place in Enschede, Deventer and Apeldoorn. See below how to register for each location. The registration fee is € 15. Please note that it is not possible to register for one activity alone, but only for the entire programme. 

The INTRO registration form is set to English by default for all three locations. Prefer Dutch? Open the form, go to 'Menu' at the top left and select 'Dutch' at the bottom to adjust this.

The part of the INTRO that is specific to your degree programme is obviously free of charge. A fee of €15 applies to the general part of the INTRO to cover the cost of food. If you need overnight accommodation, we have places to sleep for €15 a night. Visit the Introduction page and go to your city to get more information and to register.

If you have registered for the INTRO on location, meals and water/drinks are included in the price. So this will be arranged for you!

However, we can imagine that during the activities or concerts you might want to get some additional drinks. You can buy these on site all three locations by means of coins. Good to know:

  • 1 coin = € 2,50
  • To be more sustainable, we will ask you to pay for your cup (1 coin) which you can reuse afterwards

  • It is only possible to pay via pin

We will provide (limited) overnight accommodation for each campus. This costs only €15 a night. Where can I spend the night?

When you register for the INTRO, you can book a place to sleep in the form. So, visit the page for your city and register! You will also find more information here about overnight accommodation and what to bring along.

Please note: We do not have capacity to provide each student with sleeping accomodations. Therefore we cannot guarantee that you will be able to stay overnight. So don't wait too long to register and reserve your spot! If everything is full, see if you can arrange a place to stay with friends or acquaintances.

First check your spam folder! If the confirmation is not there either, please contact the location with which you registered: 

Unfortunately, you cannot make changes yourself, but we can do it for you. Please contact the location with which you registered: 

That's possible, but please note that you can only cancel free of charge up to and including 18 August 2022. Please contact the location with which you registered. Do so by e-mail, stating your IBAN. 

If you cancel by 18 August 2022, you will be reimbursed as soon as possible after the INTRO. If you cancel after 18 August 2022, it is not possible to refund your payment. 

No, unfortunately that is not possible. The standard fee for participating in the INTRO programme is € 15, regardless of the parts in which you participate. 

Please inform us that this is the case before the INTRO starts. Contact the location with which you registered as soon as possible. The duplicate registration fee will be refunded as soon as possible after the INTRO. 

You can look this up on our website using the search function at the top right of the page.

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.
