Chalmers Pre-Departure Events
We've hosted a digital Pre-Departure Week for all master's students who were admitted in the first application round. There was a new theme every day and the students got to meet some of the staff and get to know Chalmers better! We also had the pleasure of having a few of our alumni as guests to talk about their study experience and what they're doing now.
Students admitted in the late application round will be invited to one Pre-Departure event (12 May, 3pm - 4:30pm, CEST) where you can learn more about practicalities and the next steps in the process, as well as ask us questions and get to know Chalmers better.
