WELCOME TO LUND
- INTRODUCTION PROGRAM FOR NEWCOMER PROFESSIONALS
Every year, about 2500 international students are introduced to the city of Lund through the University’s International Mentor groups. Together with the arrival program during the first few weeks, this opens the doors to an amazing social community and a time-of-your-life experience. But what if you are a professional, an intern, a spouse joining a recruited partner or just a newly arrived looking for a starting point for your social life here? Who is then taking care of your social establishment?
Through the Welcome to Lund program, Eos Cares is tapping into this void by creating a series of seminars and social events combined with mentorship sessions, where newcomers can learn from mentors who share experiences from living in the region. Inspired by the University, we aim to provide valuable meetings through which our seminar/event leaders and mentors introduce the region to the newcomers and allow for them to build social connections within our community.
Typically, the mentorship sessions are held one hour before the start of our seminars/social events, which are open for the public. This way, the mentors and participants get private time to discuss some selected topics, before proceeding with the main theme of the event where also other visitors are joining.
The pilot round of the program took place from September-October 2019. From the fall of 2020, the program will be running continuously.
