First Year Groups

Dear first years,

Welcome to the thrilling start of your university journey, where a brand new chapter awaits each and every one of you! Some of you have already met new people during the Introduction week, but some did not have that chance yet. Allow us to introduce you to the concept of first-year groups!

Picture this: you’ll be placed into a group with other first-years, guided by enthusiastic mentors that will let you experience the joys that Gyrinus natans has to offer. You can visit activities, social drinks and get familiar to the VU with your group. Need advice on your studies? Look no further, as your mentors are also there to support you in all academic matters.

In this way, it will be easier for you to meet new people within your own study and of course have some fun together!
