The week before the beginning of term, an introductory week for exchange students is organized by the International Office. Among other things, the program includes an information event, a tour of the university, a guided tour of the town as well as a full day's outing. The introductory week provides excellent opportunity for getting to know other exchange students as well as local students. Participation is mandatory.
During the semester the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Bern organizes a social and culture program for exchange students.
