International Welcome Days

International Welcome Days



The International Students Welcome Days (IWD) for the second term of the year 2019-2020 will take place from February 3rd to 14th 2020.

A week full of activities, workshops and gatherings for the international students to get to know the UAB student societies. In addition, we will enjoy an International Lunch, where each of you may bring typical dishes from your country to share. The IWD are a great chance for you to know more about the UAB and, thus, make the most of your stay in Barcelona. On the IWD you can also meet other newly arrived international students and local students that participate as a Mentor.
