Incoming students_2nd term welcome_1718The International Relations Service at UPF has organized the welcome and orientation day for 210 internationalexchange  students starting their stay at UPF during the second term. This session took place at the Poblenou Campus Auditorium last 8 th of January. These students come from different programmes such as LLP/Erasmus (Europe), bilateral agreements (rest of the world) and visiting. Most of them come from European universities, although UPF has also received an important number of American, Australian and Asian students.   
The session started with a university introductory session by the International Relations Service. Afterwards, students' services addressed to international exchange students were introduced, such as Language Volunteering, IT services, University Community and Assistance Service (SACU) and UPF Languages. Furthermore, there was an information session
about safety in Barcelona, an opening lecture "Barcelona: past & present" held by 
professor Stephen Jacobson and a presentation by ESN (Erasmus Students Network), who offered a guided tour for exchange students around Poblenou and Ciutadella campuses. During this term's first week, students meet their academic coordinators in the information sessions by fields of study.
