International Welcome Days

International Welcome Days UAB

The International Students Welcome Days (IWD) 2016-2017 will take place from 8 to 16 February 2017.

All week, plenty of activities, training workshops and gatherings are organized for international students to familiarize with the UAB student societies. Moreover, we will be having an international lunch where each of you may bring and share typical dishes from your country. 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 come international students.
