What does Introduction Week include?
Introduction Week will help you:

The buddy system

You will also be introduced to your new DTU buddy, who will look after and assist you during your first semester at the University.

Many of our DTU Buddies have also studied abroad, and some are current international students who have first-hand knowledge of how daunting and exciting it is to arrive in a new country. In your Buddy Group, you'll be together with local students and other international students, all eager to get started and get to know each other!
