Good to know

  • Audience Study Program Introduction:
    The Study Program Introduction is only intended for new students and not for students who have already completed a preparatory Bachelor or Premaster.
  • Fee for participation:
    None. Participation during these days is expected from you as you will learn how to find your way around campus by e.g. learning how to register for courses and exams.
  • Registration:
    You do not need to sign up for this introduction activity. We expect all of our students to join as it is the best way to start your education. In other words,  participation is your own responsibility, to make sure you have all the information to start your study program.
    If you have questions about the program introduction please e-mail the contact person of your School (see Study Program Introduction per School section).
