Orientation Days

The Orientation Days 26-27 August 2021

The purpose of the Orientation Days is both to provide students new to Sweden with information about Sweden and what to expect from your studies here in Borås. It is an opportunity for students to familiar themselves with the different services at the university and meet the people behind them. The Orientation days are mandatory for exchange students and all international students are encourages to particpate.
