It is recommended that international students attend the Orientation Day, Friday 31 August between 09:00 and 14:30. Please assemble about 10 minutes before in the reception area on Campus (main entrance, Cramérgatan 3).

The Orientation Day programme is designed to welcome and introduce international students to the university, Campus Gotland, and to Visby. We will begin with about two hours information, seated in the campus restaurant Maltfabriken, including a break for coffee/tea, and will then proceed with guiding you around the premises, as well as introduce you to the library and to Rindi, in smaller groups. (Please bring your passport since both registration and activating your Student Account requires a formal ID.)

You will be informed about the resources available to you as a student, along with other useful tips to assist and guide you through your stay. Information about the course Basic Swedish 1 will also be presented.
