Once a year FAU welcomes its new international arrivals at its festive Welcome Event. Researchers and doctoral candidates from all over the world are officially welcomed by the Executive Board, find out about the most important university services at their information stands, and have an opportunity to get to know one another over a snack and a drink. At the end of the event, all participants are given a surprise welcome gift.

The events are managed by the Welcome Centre and Alumni Management.
