Stockholm University organises a series of welcome activities at the beginning of each semester.
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 (attendance is optional) and includes an Arrival Service and an Orientation Day, see more details about these events below.
