If you decide to participate in this, just tick “yes” in the appropriate section of the online application for exchange study at MU. It is not binding, it is only for us to know how many of you are interested. Later, after the deadline for online applications, you will be informed by a bulk e-mail of how to pay for Orientation Week online in the online IS Shopping Centre in order to book a place in orientation week. Only after that payment is your participation confirmed and reserved.
Can I participate in Orientation Week if I did not tick “yes” in my application online?
Although you did not tick “yes”,you can still apply. You just confirm your interest by paying the fee online in IS through the Shopping Centre.
I did not receive any instructions on how to pay for Orientation Week.
You should check your spam box - the instruction e-mail might have ended up there. If you still can’t find it, please contact your coordinator so that he or she can send you the e-mail again or see the instructions above.
I don’t have a payment card to pay the fee online in IS Shopping Centre.
You can use someone else’s payment card. Ask your parents or friends.
I will arrive in the middle of Orientation Week and did not pay. Can I participate in some events?
You can go for events and activities which are compulsory or free for everyone as well as activities where you can pay-on-the-spot (pay the entry fee).
I cannot come for the Orientation Week as well as admission day.
It is not compulsory to participate in the Orientation Week, however, we highly recommend it. We will help you to arrange most of the important things during Orientation Week which is why it is useful to arrive on time. Otherwise, you will have to ask for an individual appointment with your coordinator.
