Welcome week

The start of your studies is packed with new information, new people, and a lot of new impressions! It is both fun and exciting, but it is also entirely normal to feel a bit overwhelmed initially. You have moved to a brand new and unfamiliar city, and you might be worried about missing important information. Don't worry - you’ll be well taken care of here!

Mentor activities at the Faculty of Medicine

A major part of the welcome week involves mentor activities. These are organized by students and focus mostly on social activities that take place in the evenings. There are many different activities planned, so there’s a good chance you’ll find something you enjoy!

A lot happens during the welcome week, and it's perfectly okay to take breaks in the afternoons. You can also opt out of certain mentor activities if you need to. In addition, it's important to drink enough water, eat enough food, and get enough sleep.
