Orientation Days

The Orientation Days for new students take place before the start of the semester and should be attended by all new international students as it is the best chance for you to receive information about studying in Borås and to meet your fellow students.

The Orientation Days will take place 30-31 August 2018 and are mandatory for all new international students, unless you are admitted to a distance programme. It is a good chance for you to receive information about living and studying in Sweden and Borås, and to meet your fellow students for the first time. You will also receive a welcome package including, among other things, a SIM card for your mobile phone.

During the first weeks of the semester you will also have the chance to engage in social activities during the Introduction arranged by the Student Union in Borås (external link). The activities will introduce you to the University and the city of Borås and it is a great opportunity for making new friends. The social activities are open for both international and Swedish students. The activities could for example be city tours, welcome dinner and much more. To participate in these events you must wear an introduction bracelet, which you will receive from the Student Union on 3 September 2018.

For current dates, please see Important Dates.
