The Studies Induction and Orientation Period  (StEOP)

All students admitted for the first time to study on a bachelor’s or diploma programme must complete a Studies Induction and Orientation Period (StEOP). The aim of the StEOP is to provide students with an overview of what the study programme contains and how it works, thereby giving them the information they need to take an informed decision on whether or not they wish to pursue that study programme.
