Arts Intro Days

Intro Week Programme for all Arts Exchange Students 24 January to 28 January

The Faculty of Arts Intro programme this year will be entirely online. We will send the relevant links to you by email, so you have access to the relevant Zoom-meetings and presentations. The Arts International Team is looking forward to meeting you at the session on 27 January and 28 January, where you can ask us any questions you may have in relation to your study at Faculty of Arts. In order to get the most out of the Q&A session we encourage you to browse through the Nice to Know Guide (which will be sent to you by email), prior to the session.
