17 Aug

On Friday, September 7th, 2018, more than 800 students of Degree Programmes and students of Exchange Programme will arrive at Zizkov campus. As a welcome, the Orientation Week is organized one week prior to the start of semester by the International Office Staff. The purpose of this week-long event is not only to help the incoming students to get familiar with the campus, but also Czech culture, language and Prague itself.

The new international students can expect a wide range of activities from taking care of the necessary mobility documents and InSIS workshops, through lectures on cultural shock, life in Prague, the history of Czech lands and the basics of Czech language.

The purpose of the Orientation Week is for students to get to know each other as well as the university campus. That is why the International Office organizes Team Game – game which helps students to gain information in interactive way.

Furthermore, activities organized by Buddy System, a VSE student organization, are part and parcel of the Orientation Week, counting informal meetings focused on foreign language practice and trips in Prague and its vicinity.
