Year schedule and kick off

Kick-off and introduction

Starting your study career at Breda University of Applied Sciences means a new school, a new town and lots of new people… To support you and your fellow students in getting acquainted with your new environment, Breda University of Applied Sciences offers some introduction programmes. Each introduction programme will take place in a fun, relaxing, sporty and educational environment!

International Kick-off

Next to all introduction programmes we organise a special International Kick-off for all new international students who start their studies at Breda University of Applied Sciences next September on Thursday 22 August 2024. Make sure you mark this date on your calendar!

You will be informed about practical matters, such as insurance-related, municipal and legal issues, how to open a Dutch bank account, how the Dutch medical system works, and so on. There will be an Info Market. Of course there will also be room for the fun part of studying at BUas and getting to know your fellow students.
