This year's cohort included exchange students, program students at various levels, Double degree and Joint program students, as well as Study Abroad participants. These students hail from over a hundred different countries, with Germany, China, the Netherlands, the USA, Great Britain, and France being the largest groups. Arrival Day marks the beginning of Orientation Weeks, a two-week introduction program to help students settle in and familiarize themselves with Lund University, Swedish culture, and student life.
