Frequently asked questions for KEI-lopers

Can the KEI-week be seen as an initiation?

No, not at all! You should see the KEI-week primarily as something that is just fun to do. It is a week full of information. Signing up for the KEI-week does not mean you are obligated to participate in the online events. You are free to join the events you like.

Is it possible for me to change KEI-groups during the KEI-week?

Yes it is. If you want to change your KEI-group for any reason you can contact the OFFICE-crew. To do so, you can call them (050 363 80 90), email them (info@keiweek.nl) or contact them via Whatsapp (+31 6 4422 6680).

If you have found another group which you think is more fun or suits you better? Thats also possible, you’ll will have to contact the OFFICE-crew about your replacement. This is important because we need to know which group you’re a part of in case of an emergency.

What does ‘KEI’ stand for?

KEI stands for “Kommissie Eerstejaars Introduktie” , which can be translated as “The commission for the introduction of first-year students”. The KEI-week is the general introduction week for all incoming higher education students, both at the University of Groningen and the Hanze University of Applied Sciences. The KEI-week is the oldest, largest and cheapest introduction week in the Netherlands.

When does the KEI-week takes place?

The KEI-week 2021 takes place from 16th until the 20th of August!

Who can sign up for the KEI-week?

The KEI-week is organized for all first year students of the University of Groningen, Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Obstetric Academy Amsterdam Groningen, Stenden University of Applied Sciences and HBO-NL. Pre-Master and Master students are also more than welcome!

Can I receive a refund if I have paid but choose not to attend the KEI-week?

It is not possible to claim a refund for any previously paid for ‘articles’ such as a ticket for the KEI-week. We advise you to wait with your registration until you are accepted at the university/school. We don’t have a maximum of participants for the KEI-week, so you can always sign up online for the KEI-week until the 14th of August.
