KEI-board

 

The Executive Board  is a team of 7 people that works full time for a year to organise the KEI-week. The team is active from the 1st of December to the 30th of November. This year is jam-packed and sorely needed in order to organise a 5-day event with 5000 first years and 1000 other students. In the year, you get to know; all the ins and outs of Groningen and its organisations; you work together with an enthusiastic and motivated team; you come into contact with lots of large companies; you are closely in contact with the university and the university of applied sciences in Groningen; and best of all, you give 5000 students an unforgettable introduction to their life to their student career!

Every year hosts a new Executive Board, which means the KEI-week stays dynamic and each Board gets their chance to make the KEI-week their own. Each year has a new theme, a new feel to it, and events which reflex the change in the students organising this week. As the Executive Board, this year represents an opportunity to let your creativity, your ambitions and your enthusiasm run wild!

In order to organise a fantastic KEI-week, the Board needs to invent and organise events, get sponsors on board and recruit hundreds of volunteers. As well as this, they need to get as many KEI-lopers (participants) on board as possible, and keep in contact with student associations and other organisations with an interest in students.

The following people are part of the Executive Board:

Chairman Remmie Palland
Secretary Lisette van Essen

Frequently asked questions for KEI-lopers

What does the KEI-week cost?

The fee for registration is only €25,-: the cheapest introduction week in The Netherlands! You can also sign-up during the KEI-week, this costs €28,-. When registered, you have access to all events. The KEI organisation will provide coupons that will enable you to buy drinks and meals in bars and restaurants for reduced prices.

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 or KEI-hostel/Sleep-in?

It’s not possible to claim a refund for any previously paid for ‘articles’ such as a ticket for the KEI-week or a place to sleep during the KEI-week (KEI-hostel, Sleep in). 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 9th of August. However, we don’t have an unlimited amount of places to sleep, so we can’t guarantee a place to sleep if you wait too long.

What is the deadline for registration?

Online registration is possible until Friday the 9th of August. During the KEI-week you can also sign up on Monday during the Day Registration. If you are not able to sign up before Monday evening, you can sign up at the KEI-office located at Pelsterstraat 23, during the rest of the week.

Can you join the same KEI-group as a friend?

Yes, it is possible to sign up with a friend for the KEI-week. Mention this in the registration form and you will be placed in the same KEI-group.
