The Meeting Point

Assistance for refugee students, first-generation students, and students from Suriname and the Caribbean region of The Netherlands.

  • Want to improve your language skills?
  • Could use some support from (higher-year) students?
  • Or have questions about topics such as:
    • Admission procedures
    • Study choices
    • Finances
    • Applying for jobs
