Orientation Days and Buddy programme
All our international exchange students are strongly advised to participate in the Orientation Days in the beginning of each semester (mid-August and the beginning of January). The Orientation Days is a mix of lectures and social activities. It is an excellent opportunity for you to meet other newly arrived exchange students and receive important information and practical support.
The buddy programme is designed to make you feel welcome and at home during your stay by offering you to be part of a buddy group.
