Hello everyone!

ESN Amsterdam is currently organizing the summer introduction week of 2021 and we need your help! ESN Amsterdam highly depends on local students to show the incoming exchange students what Amsterdam and the universities have to offer by being a coach for our introduction week! 

The ESN Introduction Week is for incoming exchange students at the University of Amsterdam and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and will take place between Tuesday August 24th and Thursday August 26th. This introduction week will be full of cultural activities, fun workshops, and more ways to get to know international students! (Be aware that if you apply, you have to be available during these days.) 

If you apply, more information will follow after registration. Thank you for reading so far, we couldn’t do this without your help!
