The Introduction Day is an informative session designed for students about to embark on their master's studies at the Faculty of Humanities. This day aims to cover everything you need to know as a new student, providing an introduction to the wide range of opportunities available at the Faculty. Our student counsellors will inform you about the support they offer, and our student panel is prepared to answer any questions you may have about life as a master's student.
