Presentations from the student orientation can be found on this page. 

Dear new international degree students and exchange students,

Welcome to Åbo Akademi University! The start of your studies will be intensive and filled with information. First-year students and exchange students start their studies with a mandatory orientation course. During the orientation course, information is given on most of the matters a student needs to know in order to get started with his/her studies. The orientation course is also where you meet your fellow students as well as get acquainted with the study environment and the city together with your tutors. 🙂

An orientation course will be organised for international students during the 29.8.2022 to 2.9.2022. The official Arrival Day for international students is Monday the 29th of August  2022.
