Introduction and welcome letter

All our courses and programmes start with a mandatory introduction meeting. If you do not attend the meeting, you will lose your enrolment in the course. The spring semester starts on January 15, 2024.

In good time before your course starts, you will get a welcome letter from the department. If you are a master's student, the welcome letter may also contain information about how you choose courses within your programme.

Sometimes our emails bounce or end up among your junk mails. If you have not received a welcome letter four weeks before the start of your course or programme, please contact our study adminstration.
