FOR PARENTS & CAREGIVERS

Dear parents & caregivers,

We can understand that your son/daughter going to a University of applied sciences can be a huge adjustment. A new city, home and school will be super exited for the new students, but perhaps also difficult for parents. All these changes will start with the introduction week of the study. In this case: Hotel Management or International Facility Management.

Breda University of applied sciences and the organization of InterSib 2022 wants to assure you that we will do all we can to make sure everyone will be safe during this introduction week. With constant surveillance and first-aid responders on site, we are creating a low-risk environment for the health, safety and peace of mind of the new students. And (maybe) most importantly for you: we will not allow any alcohol use during all days of the InterSib for students under 18.

If you have any questions now or later, please do not hesitate to check the FAQ or contact us via this page!
