Orientation programme

Spanish version​

The University of Cantabria organises a welcome programme before classes start in order to provide the student with a first contact with the university, the city of Santander and the Spanish culture in general. The programme consists of an orientation session, a guided Tour of the University and leisure and cultural activities in order to facilitate the student's social integration.

The ORI strongly recommends the student to take part in this programme.
