Orientation programme

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.


UC Welcome Programme will take place on 31 August and 1-2 September 2022. The final agenda is still to be confirmed. More information will follow shortly.
