The dates for the OBW's pre-departure orientation/information events for participants in the 2016-2017 exchange program (i.e., not the summer programs for Ontario students) are now set.
For OBW students from Ontario universities, the orientation will take place at Glendon College in Toronto on May 6-7, 2016.
For OBW students from Baden-Württemberg universities, the "Info-Seminar" will take place in Bad Herrenalb (Schwarzwald) on May 20-21, 2016.
In addition to receiving information and advice on your living and studying overseas, these events will give you an important opportunity to ask questions, to meet students from other universities in your home country who will be your peers and immediate support network when you are abroad, and to hear about the experiences of previous participants. As if that's not enough, we hope they are fun too! Detailed information will be sent to successful applicants to the OBW program in advance of these events.
The dates for the SRP orientation for Ontario students (March 2016) and the Welcome Days for Ba-Wü students (August 2016) are still tba.
Please note: none of these events replaces any mandatory pre-departure sessions that may be provided by your home university.
