Introduction week MBLS

Welcome to the bachelor MBLS of the university of Utrecht! 

The following is about the introduction period of the study year 2022-2023. 

We, the introduction committee (the IC), have worked together this whole year to organise an amazing introduction! Of course, going to university is not only about studying, it’s about going on a lot of great adventures, where you’ll learn to do new things, meet new people, get to know the Utrecht Science Park and the city of Utrecht. That’s why we start the first two weeks of the year with some awesome activities!

During the introduction, you will not only participate in the awesome activities we organised for you, but you will also start with lectures and other study-related activities. In the beginning, it’s different from high school. However, because it starts slowly, you’ll get the hang of it really quickly! 
 
For now, write down all the important dates, because you don’t want to miss out on all the great adventures we have planned for you! 

The most important dates and things you need to know: 
● Introduction day: 5th of September at 2 pm, Theatron lecture hall in the Educatorium (mandatory!) 
● Game day: 8th of September from 11 am till 5 pm. 
● Introduction camp: weekend of the 16th of September (You don’t want to miss out on this one)
