The University of Lapland organises a special orientation programme for incoming international students at the beginning of each semester (in September and in January). It is an excellent way for new students to meet and become familiar with the university, the staff, and the city of Rovaniemi.

Participation to the orientation is highly recommended as we will cover a lot of important
information concerning e.g. academic practices and course registration.
