Online Orientation Day

Save the date: 29 January 2021 from 12.00 to 16.00 

On Friday 29 January 2021 we will have an Orientation Day for all new international students. This year, due to corona, the event will take place online only.

We strongly recommend that you participate.

It is your chance to make your transition to Denmark and the Academy much easier, meet your classmates and other new international students and build your new network from the beginning. Furthermore, you will get important information about Denmark, the Academy, SU (Danish scholarship), how to find a job and much more.

Join the online Orientation Day event here - be ready at 12.30 p.m.

You can join either from a browser (like Google Chrome), or you can use the Microsoft Teams app - if you have it installed on your computer.

Please make sure that you turn off your own camera and microphone when you join the session.

Questions will be possible through the chat.
