Malmö University Orientation & Insparken

Malmö University Orientation (Previously International Introduction Week)

All students admitted to courses and programmes taught in English are invited to take part in the Malmö University Orientation. There there are going to be educational events, made to prepare International and exchange students for their time in Malmö University and social events, where they can meet other students and participate in fun activities.

Tjuvkik

Tjuvkik, or “sneek peek”, are information moments organized by Malmö University for new students.
See more info at mau.se

At Malmö University, there are three introduction weeks: Tjuvkik, the International Introduction Week, and our very own Insparken.

Insparken

Festmesteriet, who is one of the Student Union’s associations, hosts an awesome introduction in the fall semester for all new students at Malmö University. This to give every new student a chance to meet new friends, and get to know Malmö a little bit better. Insparken is for everyone, completely voluntary and without demeaning episodes.

As a new student, this can be the first great opportunity to get to know new people! To take part of the fun and relaxed activities usually works great as an icebreaker. Insparken is for new students only and is entirely planned and executed by experienced students of Malmö University.

During the Insparken you will be sorted into teams according to your faculty and then compete but also party/socialize with the students of the whole university during these two eventful weeks in August/September. The activities are led by the fadders and captains of your team and they can answer all the questions you can think of about the Student Union, university life, Insparken and Malmö.

To keep you updated on what’s happening during Insparken, we suggest that you go to The official Inspark website and/or follow Festmesteriet Facebook page.

It is also good to join Insparken’s official Facebook group.

Furthermore there is a booklet with all the information you might need as a new student (a fresher) at Malmö University. You can download it below. Here you can also find the schedule in detail.
