Stenden's logo "Hello World!"Stenden University of Applied Sciences provides all new international students with a number of events and programmes which aim to facilitate their first days and months in Holland and at the university. With the help of university senior students and staff, new pupils will get to know the university campus, the city of Leeuwarden, the Dutch lifestyle and teaching methods, and will have a chance to add something new and unique to their learning environment.

Stenden activities and resources include the International Welcome Weekend, Study Start Week, StendenWise, the Stenden buddy programme, and personal study coaching.

  • Stenden's campus in LeeuwardenStenden University meets its new students for the first time during the International Welcome Weekend (IWW). This event allows newcomers to gain a first impression about the city of Leeuwarden and the university and to meet their future classmates.
  • The introduction weekend is followed by a Study Start Week (SSW). Its content is tailored to particular study programmes and helps students get accustomed to higher education in the Netherlands. Students attending SSW receive 1 EC point.
  • StendenWise is a programme developed by Stenden UAS for first-year students. It consists of meetings with other international students which are held 1 or 2 times a month on Saturdays. During these sessions students have a chance to find answers for any questions about Stenden and to participate in various team activities. As a result, they become familiar with the university and are well prepared for any challenges they may face in the future.
  • During the first few days new Stenden students are guided by some of the university’s senior students. This opportunity is a core part of Stenden’s buddy programme and is a fun and personalised way to explore the university and the city of Leeuwarden.
  • While all these activities are helpful, they do not provide students with support for the whole course duration. That is why Stenden also assigns a personal study coach for every student who can always help with any personal or study matters.
