Week of the International Student

2 November 2021 by @avans

The Week of the International Student is here to (re)connect you with a new world! We can go out and about in the world once again. Exploring and gaining that invaluable international experience you long for, either far away or close to home. We encourage you to enjoy the possibility to meet each other again in real life with a series of interesting events for students with international aspirations or experience.

Every year NUFFIC organises the Week of the International Student. This week is dedicated to the importance of an international experience for both Dutch and international students. Many activities are organized with the aim to connect everyone. Because where worlds collide beautiful things happen. That is what this week shows at its best. Check out the full programme here below to find an activity for you.

Note! Due to stricter measures regarding events with a social character, we have had to adjust the programme of the Week of the International Student. This means that some activities that would take place at Avans will be canceled until further notice. Please check whether activities that would take place outside Avans will still take place.
