Welcome activities

In collaboration with Stockholm University Student Union, Stockholm University organises a series of welcome activities that stretch over a few weeks at the beginning of each semester.


An introduction to university life 

The activities are designed to assist you as a new student and introduce you to university life in Stockholm and Sweden.

The programme is voluntary and includes Arrival Service at the airport, a guided bus tour, a tour to IKEA, various social events, and an open fair where you get to meet staff from the University and different student associations.


Orientation Day

An important part of the Welcome activities is called Orientation Day – a welcoming day for newly arrived international students, filled with information about practical matters such as healthcare, IT services, student life and Swedish language courses.

The event is held at the beginning of each semester and offers a comprehensive seminar programme in our Plenary Hall Aula Magna.

Next Orientation Day takes place on 21 January 2020.
