Almost 300 students from 45 countries coming to study in the Exchange programme at VŠE during the Spring Semester

285 incoming exchange students from 45 countries coming to study at VŠE during the Spring Semester 2023 joined the Orientation Week in the beginning of the semester. The event is organized by the VŠE International Office and the main purpose of it, is to help the students with their preparation for the beginning of the semester.

The Orientation Week programme consisted of a wide scope of activities, ranging from the necessary administration to more interactive sessions. In the Czech Language lecture, the students were invited to explore the beauty and learn some basics of the Czech language. During the Culture Shock session, they also learned about the theoretical background of the culture shock, its phases, and how to survive it. Everything the students needed to know about the VŠE library, online book ordering system, and e-resources, was explained during the Introduction to Library Services. What is certainly worth mentioning, was the History of Czech Lands Online Session, where the most important facts about the Czech history were presented.

Simultaneously, the ESN VSE Prague organization was hosting a number of face-to-face events aiming to help international students meet new friends and discover hidden gems in Prague. Moreover, international students were paired with local students within the framework of the Buddy Programme organized by ESN VSE Prague in order to support them during their stay in Prague.

VŠE is happy to see the international population of its students grow continuously and hopes the students enjoy both their studies at VŠE and their stay in Prague.
