Orientation days and calendar

The International Relations Office organises several activities to help you settle in and get acquainted with the university and the city of Vic and Catalonia.


Before the beginning of each academic semester, we organise some Orientation Days for all the international exchange students and Double Degree students. Attendance is mandatory as detailed organizational matters, digital tools and schedules will be explained: an orientation meeting with the International Relations Office staff, an academic information session (timetables, registration, academic calendar, etc.), a UVic Services session (Virtual Campus, digital services, library, etc.), a Spanish language course, several workshops, visits around the UVic Campus and the city of Vic, etc.

The International Relations Office, organises several cultural activities during each semester to help you discover our region and Catalonia. Thanks to these leisure activities, the international students and mentors can get to know each other better. You will get detailed and updated information about each activity during your stay with us.


Some weeks before the start of the academic semester, you will receive the first e-mail from your UVic Buddy. Buddies are UVic students and staff who voluntarily give their time to offer wherever help or guidance you might need as you settle in at the University and will be available to you during your stay with us. They might be among your first friends here, helping you deal with issues that may arise. During each semester, these UVic Buddies will also organise a series of activities to help you feel at home.
