Orientation week

Date: 22-26 August 2022

Orientation Week is intended for international Master's/Bachelor's students and exchange students. It is not mandatory to attend, but we recommend you do as you will get useful information about studying in Sweden, while also having fun and getting to know your fellow students.

The Orientation week will be organized partly online and partly on campus. Between August 22-24 the sessions will be held online and August 25-26 will include campus activities.
