    On the 29 of March the first year excursion will take place. During this excursion you will go to a company of your choice and get a kick start on your career. You can find the exact program below. Note that this excursion is obligatory for all first year students and that you will have no scheduled lectures this day.

    You can choose between an online or an offline program. If you choose for the online option you can go to both a morning and an afternoon program. The offline program will be completely corona proof and in case the corona measures do not allow this excursion to be organized offline, there will be an online alternative from the same company.

    To register for the first year excursion, you can go to the Colloquium Canvas page and click on People, then go to Groups. Here you can set your first and second preference for an excursion. Make sure you register your preference before March 15th. Double bachelor students only have to register once in one colloquium page.

    In the week after the 15th of March you will receive an email stating which program(s) you may attend and the exact details for transportation or the invites for the Microsoft Teams Meetings.
