Information from the course leader

Welcome everyone!

Looking forward to meeting you all in the first week and having some interesting and enjoyable discussions during the course. If you're feeling a little nervous that's okay, we'll make sure you settle in and have some fun during this introductory course, and help you find your way :).

On Monday morning you'll meet in the big auditorium 'Aulan' in Undervisningshuset (that is the building between the library and the main university administration building). From there, you'll meet your course mates and follow the program leader for a program-specific introduction.

See you in the last week of August (in the meantime keep enjoying your sommarlov)!

cheers / Matt
