Welcome Week stamp-collecting cards

During our Welcome Week, you can collect stamps by attending events. You will receive the corresponding card at the kick-off event or from the International Student Support Team. After the Welcome Week, you can hand in your card and receive a small gift in return.

How does it work?

  1. Attend events during Welcome Week.
  2. Collect stamps on your card for events you attended. To get your stamp, please speak to the person in charge at the end of the event.
  3. Make sure you attend at least one event of each kind (tours, networking events, workshops, info events).
  4. If you have collected at least one stamp for each kind of event on your card, either hand it in at the Student Service Centre during our office hours or at the next International Coffee Break or International Lunch Break.

The more stamps you have collected, the bigger the gift. Have fun!
