Before you start your NHTV education, you are invited to participate in the introduction programme. This is organised in cooperation with the Academy for Leisure, the Academy for Tourism, the first year course ‘The Netherlands, a colourful perspective’ and the international student union Compass.

The introduction festival takes place in the last week of August. This introduction programme aims to encourage students to have fun and enjoy studying at NHTV.

Start of the programme

The course programme starts on 3 September 2018.

There are quite a lot of things to be requested, arranged, and purchased before you start classes on 3 September 2018. This checklist will help you on your way.
