Frequently asked questions

That is correct, directly after your registration you will receive a digital confirmation of your registration. The official entry ticket will be sent to you by email about a week prior to the Introduction Days.
Of course, we understand that you might not be able to participate even though you have registered. Please send an email to, stating your name, study programme, address, the ticket(s) you bought as well as the full bank account number the money needs to be transferred to. Please note: the refund may not be made until after the VU Introduction Days. Unfortunately we are unable to refund the administrative charges, since they have already been paid to the bank.
You certainly can! If you are sure that you will be studying at VU Amsterdam, it would be a shame to miss the Introduction Days. However, in this case, you must have a valid ID with you.

The programme of the Introduction Days has something for everyone but you are not obliged to participate in everything. You are free to opt out of certain parts of the programme if they don't appeal to you or make you feel uncomfortable. Feel free to discuss this with one of your mentors so that they can guide you through the week.

Participating in the VU Introduction Days costs € 63,-. Some faculties organize additional activities which may raise the price of your ticket. A number of student associations organize a weekend programme to give you a chance to get to know other first-year students in your programme and of course promote the association itself.
In addition to the cost of participation, you will also need money for food and drink. Please bear this in mind.
Of course, the VU Introduction Days are also for students who have a disability. Many of the locations are wheelchair accessible. If you want more information or if you require special transport, give Eric-Jan Hartstra a call on (020) 5985076 from 7 August. Read more about studying with a disability or a chronic illness.
