Orientation week for new international degree students and exchange students

Dear new exchange students,

Welcome to Åbo Akademi University! The start of your studies will be intensive and filled with information. Exchange students start their studies with a mandatory orientation week. 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 exchange students during the 2.1.2023 to 5.1.2023. The official Arrival Day for exchange students is Monday the 2nd of January 2023.
