The Introduction Period

The Master Introduction period of SD (Sustainable Development) and WSM (Water Science and Management) will start at the 3rd of September 2018. The Introduction Period consists of a week program in Utrecht (03-09-2018 until 07-09-2018) and a weekend away (14-09-2018 until 16-09-2018). At the beginning of the week you will have the chance to subscribe for the activities during the week and the weekend through a form we hand out. You can also choose to subscribe just for the week, or just for the weekend.

The week

The week will look something like this:

Monday: Tour over the campus and pizza

Tuesday:  lunch and game to get to know Utrecht (+ a possibility of going out later that night)

Thursday: BBQ and bonding games

Friday: Activity with dinner (for instance bowling/pooling)

The price for this entire week will be around 15 euros.

The weekend

The weekend away will take place nearby Utrecht. We will stay in a large group accomodation in the woods. We will be at the place from Friday (+-17.00h) until Sunday (+-12.00h). For the weekend we have a maximum of 65 people who can join us. If there are more people wanting to join than the 65 that can stay, we determine randomly who can go and who cant.

On the weekend we will have a hike through the forest and we will play living Cluedo. Apart from this we will have lots of other smaller activities and of course a lot of food. The weekend will be about bonding with your fellow students and having fun! It will NOT be a hazing kind of weekend or week, so don’t be afraid!

The price for the weekend will be around 35 euros.
