”Unexpected Journey is the ideal way to get to know your fellow students. By throwing yourself into the deep, you challenge yourself to take steps that make you feel welcome in Breda and BUas right away! This week is recommended for everyone, no one excluded!”

Pieter – Tourism student

”The introduction week gives a good impression of the city of Breda. “Gezelligheid” is key, and that is how I experienced the city. I recommend every first-year BUas student to go to the Unexpected Journey. I got to know my classmates much better and that really helped me in the rest of my studies!!”

Quinta – Tourism student

“I had a wonderful time during my Unexpected Journey. I met so many great people during this week and can honestly say: I made friends for life! Often, I look back on these memories and realise that Unexpected Journey was a perfect start to my student life. I definitely recommend all incoming students to join this amazing week!”
