Meet your fellow students and get all the practical information you need
The Orientation Days are two fun-filled and information-packed days that will give you all the information you need as a student at SDU. The days are a mix of practical information and fun social activities.
You’re new here – let us make you feel welcome
It is our aim to make you feel ready to take on your Danish adventure, feeling more excited than anxious. We will help you get all the practical things in order and start building a social network, so you can enjoy your stay here.
When is it?
The Orientation Days are always the first two days before the semester begins. In autumn/fall 2019, they will be 29 and 30 August. The autumn semester semester will begin on 2 September and you will receive information about your first classes before you start at SDU.
Should I prepare anything?
Other than what has been mentioned in the Arrival e-mail, you do not have to prepare anything! There are, though, a few things we would like you to consider before arriving. Consider the following a personal mental exercise, primarily for your own sake, and to ensure that you are properly prepared to begin your studies in Denmark.
Simply ask yourself the following questions:
- Why did I choose to study in Denmark?
- What do I expect the experience to be like?
- What do I hope to take with me in the future from this experience?
In extension of the Orientation Days, you are invited to a workshop on the Danish academic tradition and how to get the best results at your exams. The workshop will take place on 6 November at 4.00 p.m. in room O77. You will receive more information as we close in on the date.
To the right you will find information on the Orientation Days programme, as well as an introduction to your tutors and information on your study programme. You will also find an introduction to the IT-facilities at SDU as well as an introduction to the library, which we recommend you have a look at before you arrive.
We are looking forward to seeing you and wish you a great start to your studies at SDU!
