Introduction week (HOI)

Every year the week before school starts Saxion holds an introduction week, the HOI week, for all its first year students. This introduction week consists of two parts: an obligatory introduction to your programme and a general introduction to Saxion University of Applied Sciences. During the HOI week you will meet your new fellow students, find your way around the Saxion campus and discover Enschede as a student city.
