Welcome Program for Accompanying Spouses/Partners


Many new international colleagues who join the TU/e travel to Eindhoven accompanied by their spouse / partner. Or they are joined by them later.

Traveling abroad with your working spouse / partner can come with some challenges, especially if you don’t have a job yourself yet.

The TU/e offers a program to help the international spouses / partners cope with some of these challenges.

The costs for this program are paid for by the university.

If your spouse/partner is interested to participate or you want to ask something about the program, see the contact information at the bottom of this page.

Get-in-Touch program

The program we offer is called the ‘Get-in-Touch program’.

The program lasts roughly 3 months and consists of weekly meetings. The two main aims of the program are:

  • to get to know other international spouses / partners @TU/e
  • To learn more about the city of Eindhoven

You take part in this program in a small group, of roughly 5 participants.

Each group is hosted by a local or by an international with long lasting experience in the Netherlands.

Indigo World

The Get-in-Touch program is carried out by ‘Indigo World’, a bureau dedicated to strengthening the connections between people from different cultures.

The program was designed in close cooperation between Indigo World and TU/e.

See the Indigo World website for more information about this network.

Additional information

English language
The language of the Get-in-Touch program is English.

That is another way of saying: for you to experience the full benefit of the program it works best if the participants speak English at an elementary conversation level and up.


Are you interested to participate in this Get-in-Touch program for spouses / partners of TU/e internationals?

Would you like to know more? Or maybe try one or two sessions before you decide to enroll for the whole program?
