Benefits of Orientation Days

Day with your Trainer

You will spend one day with your Trainer (a senior student, in the same or similar field). They will give you a tour of the faculty, show you the study areas, where the registrar is based... You can also look forward to ice-breakers and fun.

Meeting classmates

On the course you will be sorted by field or faculty. You will have the opportunity to get to know your classmates before you even start studying together!

Tour of your faculty

As part of the course, we'll take you to the spaces you'll be spending your student life. We'll show you the nooks and crannies, the best chill zones, the greenhouses (if relevant to your studies), the cafés and the place your student registrar is based. University won't be foreign to you and you'll feel much more comfortable here.

Walk through Olomouc

Orientation Days take place in Olomouc, so you will get to know the city before you start your studies. We'll show you interesting places, cafes, restaurants, UPoint, but also dorms, canteens or clubs that we think are the best. 

Practical tips&tricks

The course can provide useful tips&tricks on how to study effectively, organise your time and manage academic challenges. You can look forward to interesting and inspiring lectures, as well as tips from upper year students. 


Orientation Days are not just about lectures you will listen to, but also about having fun. You will get to have fun during the 'Day with your Trainer', play some games, go to the café with us, meet the organizers etc.
