Welcome greetings

Unfortunately, the pandemic cancelled our popular welcome fairs where you as a new or old student can discover your student city. Instead, this year we have let companies, authorities, associations, the university and student associations record films where they explain what they have to offer and how you as a student can take advantage of offers or get involved.
