Q&A Information Sessions

Several Q&A sessions will be held on the Master's Kick Off event to enable you to have direct contact with study advisers and teachers. The Q&A sessions are held in Microsoft Teams, you do not need the MS Teams software on your PC yet but it might work a bit better than in the browser.

When opening the link you will be asked to continue either in the browser or in the Microsoft Teams client. Choose either and after fill in your name and set up your webcam/microphone.

There will be separate MS Teams meetings for each specialisation and there will be two for contact with the Study Advisers. There is also a meeting for help with enrollment. MS Teams allows a maximum of 300 participants so it might be possible that you would have to wait to participate in the study adviser Q&A once this limit is reached. Therefore we have organised an additional Q&A in the afternoon.

When you open each link a Microsoft Teams tab will open. Here you can choose to use the browser or the Microsoft Teams software, both is fine to use. You can fill in your name and set up your software after. Please join the meeting with your mic muted. You can either raise your hand and talk through your mic or you can ask your questions in the chat.
