Covid19 measures and the VU Introduction week

Despite the limitations because of the measurements regarding Covid19, the VU and Aureus will have a full week program lined up for you. Whereas the VU takes care of practical sessions, for you to get to know the digital environment and all services that the university offers, Aureus takes care of social cohesion for your study specifically. The week will take place in a so-called “hybrid” form, a combination of online and offline activities. It will, therefore, be still possible to meet fellow students in your studies. The groups will be small of size so we can do it together and do it safely. Become an Aureus member and follow the social media to stay up to date. (link socials)
