At the start of each semester, UHasselt organizes introductory days for international students to help them find their way around the university. International students get information about administrative procedures, the electronic learning environment, insurances, Belgian culture, student associations, bicycle rental etc. It is also the ideal way to get to know other (international) students.

* The introductory days of the first semester take place annually on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during the second week of September.

* The introductory day of the second semester is being held annually on the second Monday of February.

Being present at these introductory days is compulsory!
