Study start Cognitive Science 2019

Dear new Cognitive Science students,

Welcome to the international master’s program in Cognitive Science at Aarhus University!

We would like to invite you to participate in the introduction program from September 2-4. The aim of the introduction days is to introduce you to your fellow students and future teachers, get a first impression of the study, and feel prepared to start your first semester on the MSc program in Cognitive Science. These days will be filled with fun social activities and will give you an insight into student life and the study environment at Aarhus University.

The introduction days start Monday, September 2, at 09:00 with breakfast in small groups at one of the tutors’ homes. You will receive an e-mail in August about these groups and where to meet up. During the introduction days, we have loads of fun prepared for you – The full programme will be sent to you. To sum up: it will include games in the University Park, a pub crawl downtown, lectures by Cognitive Science teachers, and a GRAND party/dinner Wednesday evening to finish off your intro-week.

All you need to bring for the introduction week are lunch on days where not specified otherwise and appropriate clothes (check the weather forecast before you leave. Click the button below to read more about the first week and the program.
