Social event in the Student House
Tuesday the 31st of August you can get to know your fellow students a little better. Join the social event in the Student House (building 13) and enjoy study start coffee, board games and snacks from 1 pm onwards. The event is for all new Master’s students. You do not need to register for this event.
Introduction session at your Master's programme
In addition to the Foundation Course, you will be able to get a hands-on introduction to your studies at your master’s programme. You can find the dates for your study start in the information about your programme at study.ruc.dk. If you study a two-subject Master, your study start will be in your Subject 1. Details about locations and programmes will be updated as soon as possible – we are still busy preparing the final details.
Info café about Special Needs and Support
In one of the first weeks of your studies, we will hold an Info Café about Special Needs and Support for students with for example dyslexia, a mental and/or physical disability. You do not need to sign up for the info café.

Handbook for New International Students
Read the handbook Getting Started with information for new international students. It offers a lot of hands-on information regarding student life at RUC and your stay in Denmark, for example, what to do before your stay in Denmark and what to do upon arrival and much more.
The Buddy Programme is a face-to-face introduction to Denmark, facilitated by current students at Roskilde University, giving you an informal introduction to student life at the University. The Buddy Programme will also host common social events for all international and local buddies throughout the semester.
Register before semester start and we will pair you with a local buddy in a small buddy group, so you will have a friend from day one. Somebody who will help you around campus, and also somebody to go for dinner, lunch, parties and all sort of things with. Also, many fun activities will be arranged by Roskilde University, exclusively for the Buddy Programme.
Due to Covid-19 the Buddy Programme runs many of its events digitally in order to follow RUC’s regulations. Since the buddy groups are small, it may still be possible for the separate groups to meet in person.
