FHML bachelor's introduction - 2018

When you start your studies at the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML), you will be invited to participate in the student orientation programme in August. The programme consists of a general orientation week (INKOM ) followed by an introduction to the faculty.

Faculty introduction programme per bachelor's

The Faculty Introduction is an introduction to studying at our faculty. During the introduction day you will meet your fellow students, you will receive information about your study, the faculty organisation, the building in which you will be studying, the teaching system, etcetera. 
At the end of the day, there is a welcome party with a DJ and food trucks. You can relax on the grass, while grabbing something to eat and to drink, while chatting or dancing with other first-year students and teachers. You must register for this party (€ 5 for participation) but you'll get four drink vouchers and four food vouchers in return.

At our study associations you can:

receive discount on books and study materials;
get exam training and study support;
attend lectures and workshops focused on your study programme and career;
help to improve the educational system.

Most study associations also organise an introduction camp and/or another introduction activity for new students (apart from the Faculty Introduction). More information about these camps and activities is available via the following links:
