The Orientation Days of 2020 took place in the period from the 28.9. until the 30.9. This years programme had to be adapted at the last minute due to the worsening situation concerning the spread of COVID-19. Thus, several activities got cancelled, some moved online and others got adapted to respect social distancing and mask wearing. Nonetheless, international students managed to have fun, get to know each other, their faculties as well as the city once the weather improved.
