It affords students the opportunity to get work experience in companies where they can put what they have learned in the lecture rooms into effect in real working situations. It also gives students advice on how to enter the labour market at the end of their university studies.

Its main purpose is to offer students advice on personal and academic matters to ensure their personal well-being and academic performance.

This programme, for all students coming up to the university for the first time, is designed to help them to adjust to and become fully integrated in university life. For a week before starting their courses, they are shown around the university campuses, to get to know the services available to them and meet their fellow students in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are also open-air activities. The overall objective of the week is that students should familiarise themselves with what the university has to offer.
