Orientation Week

Fall semester 2017: September 11 - 15, 2017

Orientation Week (shortly Oweek) is organised for all incoming students during one week prior beginning of each semester. Generally, students get familiar with the University, city and culture. They gain necessary information for their start at VSE and in the Czech Republic.

Please note that the Oweek is mandatory to all Exchange Programme students. The International Office encourages students to participate in this event in order to get essential information about VSE.

Please, bring your PC with you if you own one. It is handy to have it with you for the InSIS lecture.

For more information about the Academic Calendar and dates when the Orientation Week is taking place, please refer here.

First day is known as a Registration Day, students are asked to come to the University with their Buddy to register and pick up important documents. Several lectures concerning introduction of VSE and InSIS (VSE Information System) as well as collection of Mobility documents (Learning Agreements, Confirmation of Arrival) are organized. Later in the afternoon, students are invited to the official Welcome Ceremony in Vencovský hall with a foreword of VSE Rector or Vice-rector.
