Beautiful spring day at Chalmers

We are very glad that you have chosen to spend an exchange semester or year at our university. Every year we are welcoming around 600 incoming exchange students from all over the world, and we are dedicated to doing our best to make your stay at Chalmers as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible.


We want to make sure you get a good start to your stay and so we would like to invite you to join the reception held for new students. Chalmers arranges a reception two times a year for our international students who arrive in January and in August. In January it is smaller event, Orientation Day. In the autumn it is a larger event called the Orientation week which Chalmers arranges together with CIRC (Chalmers International Reception Committee). This is our common way to welcome all new students and help you into your life at Chalmers.

Dates and more information on the Orientation is found here
