Orientation week is organised by the International Relations Office and ESN UP Olomouc and introduces students to various services and system operation at Palacký University.
It always preceeds the official beginning of classes in each semester. The orientation week starts with a welcome meeting, each participant will receive information materials such as a printed week programme, a map of Olomouc and all necessary documents you still need to fill in to get a student card and so on. The programme includes a sightseeing tour of the town and the town hall, Czech culture lecture (you will laugh your pants off), an information session with a police officer, a course of Survival Czech for real beginners, meetings with members of ESN UP Olomouc and department coordinators, welcome parties and other afternoon events.
There are also practical information sessions to instruct incoming students how academic issues at Palacký University are organized, what documents to fill out and use, who are the university coordinators and where to find them, how to get a university ID, a pass for public transportation etc. Information on a Czech as a Foreign Language course is provided as well.
