The International Office invites all exchange students to participate in the orientation days at the beginning of the semester! They are organised to provide you with the essential information for a successful and exciting exchange period at Utrecht University. Furthermore, it is the perfect opportunity to meet your fellow exchange students, the faculty, the university and of course the city of Utrecht. After the orientation days you are ready and well-prepared for your study period at the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance.
