The StudyStartWeek is your introduction to NHL Stenden. Besides the programme of your study, you can follow various events from August 22 until August 26! The StudyStartWeek will keep you moving, introduce you to your student city and will entertain you throughout the day!

Campus Tour

Students are organizing a Campus Tour. If this tour is not part of your programme, you can walk this tour by yourself or your group. We create a map and refer to the hotspots at the buildings. So don’t miss out and get to know the Campus! Grab yourself a map at the Knowledge Square and start with the journey.

Take part in the NHL Stenden Pubquiz!

Join the knowledge quiz where students, lectures and staff can challenge each other on Wednesday, the 24th of August, from 19:30 until 21:00. Test your general knowledge, be prepared for the music round and discover what you know about NHL Stenden.

Isn’t the quiz part of your programme? Don’t worry, you can sing up your own group. We will send you an invitation during your StudyStartWeek, sign up and have fun and win amazing prices!
