ISN Wintro 2021
Welcome to all new students in Amsterdam, a lovely city with a rich history, culture, and traditions! Studying in Amsterdam will not only enrich your knowledge by broadening your horizons but it also enables us to build lifelong friendships with students from all around the world. ISN will help you with this by bringing you together with our unforgettable activities, events and trips. We hope that this way you can get the most out of your stay!
What better way to discover Amsterdam than during an introduction week? From the 28th 30th of January, ISN will organise the Winter Introduction Week. This week is designed to help newly arrived students to meet each other and discover our beautiful city of Amsterdam & the universities. These three intensive days will lay the foundation for your entire stay here. It is a good opportunity to make friends while engaging in interesting activities.
During the week there will be numerous things to do including a city tour, a crash course Dutch, workshops, a sports day and great parties! Participants will be divided in groups guided by coaches (students who already know Amsterdam). The week will be a great introduction to the Amsterdam student life.

A great way to get involved with internationals is by becoming the ISN Coach! Your main task will be guiding a group of international students through the ISN Introduction Week. However, you can imagine that you’ll become more than that. For most of the students you are their first (“Dutch”) friend, someone they can ask all kinds of questions about the Netherlands, and especially Amsterdam. In short, a great way to meet new people and have an amazing week!
During the introduction week, international students will be divided into groups of 15-20 people. Each group has two coaches leading them, if coaches sign up together, they will lead a group together. Coaches will guide the students through the program and make them familiar with Amsterdam. It is a fantastic way to make friends from around the world and meet some interesting people. An extra plus is that you can participate in the program for free!

– Affection for international students
– Knowledge of the English language
– Knowledge of Amsterdam (i.e. do you know your way)
– Being available from the 28th – 30th of January is a must
