Your first day at Roskilde University (RUC) is Monday the 22nd of August. You will be greeted by a great team of tutors who have spent their holiday preparing a two-week introduction programme to RUC. During these first two weeks, you will be introduced to the academic and social life at RUC.
You should expect social and academic activities from 9:00 to 17:00 every day during the introduction period.
Remember to check if you are eligible to receive SU (student grant)
If you are not a Danish citizen, you must fulfil special conditions in order to be entitled to SU.

The mentor programme is a face-to-face introduction to Denmark given by a current student at the university. The point is to give an informal introduction to student life at Roskilde University.
Mentors are very useful to have as a first connection after arrival. A mentor helps international students to have a much better experience at RUC.
Feel free to e-mail us at mentor(at)ruc.dk with questions, comments etc. about the mentor programme.
