Welcome Services

The Welcome Day will be held online this year. We will run the programme twice on 25 August, 10:00-12:00 CEST and 17:00-19:00 CEST, so that as many students as possible will be able to join. The information is the same during both webinars.

During the webinar you may expect welcome speeches and introductions to the University's services, such as the GU card, University Library, student unions and more.

Sign up for Welcome Day time slot 1 (10:00-12:00 CEST)
Sign up for Welcome Day time slot 2 (17:00-19:00 CEST)
