Freshers’ week

Every year, UNIL invites its new undergraduates to the “Welcome Week”, designed to help them find out more about the university and gather a great deal of useful information, so as to get off to a good start. 


The week includes:

  • A presentation on UNIL and the services on offer to students,
  • Practical information given by each subject area to its students,
  • Advice on working methods.


Specific welcome sessions are also offered to students living away from home and international newcomers who do not speak French (the content is translated into English).


Welcome Week runs every year the week before the start of the academic year.

The next Welcome Week: from 13 to 17 September 2021.
