Digital Welcome Folder

All exchange students receive a welcome folder at the beginning of their studies at the University of Salzburg that contains some additional documents for the beginning of the semester. We have tried to compile the most important contents in digital form. These documents provide additional information to the session during the orientation weeks. Have fun looking through them!
