The first few days are often the most eventful for a new international student, which is why VIS and the university have prepared a whole program for you! You can see the whole Welcome Week schedule on the VIS Welcome Week page, but here's some highlights:
Arrival days: 22nd-23rd of August
If you arrive in Växjö by train or air (at Smålands Airport), we will be there to pick you up. On arrival, you will be given an arrival package that includes information and a free SIM card to use in Sweden. More details will be given soon!
Orientation: 24th-26th of August
The university organizes an orientation day where you'll have the opportunity to meet all the people involved in your stay in Sweden: the faculty, the student union, VIS, and also the support services of the university and the local government.
VIS evening: 28th of August
The big opening of the VIS semester! You'll be able to purchase memberships, as well as tickets to some of the big trips and events of the semester. We will also have games from the committees, and a second-hand area where you can pick up free items left behind by old students!
