The Orientation Week is dedicated to our new Exchange Students that come to ISCAP from all over the world every semester!
In this week, the COMAP Team and the International Office organize several activities for you to know the system of our university, know the campus and even the city of Porto!
Here is the plan for the Winter Semester of 2022/2023 Orientation Week!
Our orientation is filled with terrific activities, some are made to make you acquainted with ISCAP while others are meant for you to do what you came here to do, have fun, and enjoy the time of your life (but don´t forget to study hahaha). Also, as much as we care about giving you a good time and making you feel at home in Porto, we also value everyone´s safety and well-being so some of our activities will need certain covid related requirements for you to participate.
Now, let us give you a look a what kind of activities you can expect during our orientation week:
19th September – Welcome Session and International Picnic
Get to know the ins and outs of ISCAP, from our student council to our international office, meet everyone that will be present for you during your stay here.
Later in the afternoon, join us at our international picnic, bring a characteristic snack, drink, appetizer, have a good time and meet some new people.
20th September – DOMUS + MBWAY Tutorial
Start the day by learning how to access Domus (our online platform) and navigate in it, get to know everything related to grades, schedules, and other academic-related matters.
We’ll also present to you MBWAY, which is a portuguese platform that allows you to send money to portuguese contacts, withdraw money at ATM machines without a card and pay contactless pretty much anywhere in Portugal.
21st September – Douro River Cruise, Port Wine Cellars and Pub Crawl
Cruise with us through the iconic Douro River and enjoy the fabulous boat ride, believe us you will love the views.
Hopefully, you will enjoy the views of the city just as much as our famous Porto Wine, let us take you through the cellars and taste one of the best things Porto has to offer.
To show you that endings can be just as beautiful as beginnings, you’ll be able to experience the sunset at Jardim do Morro, it’s a very well known spot for sunset watching and we’re sure it’ll be one of your favorite places during your stay with us.
To end your day in a good mood, you’ll be able to do a Pub Crawl, or, as we like to call it in Portugal: Rally Tascas. We’ll visit a few bars where you can experiment a few alchoolic drinks that are usually consumed in Portugal so you’ll know what to ask for on your next night out.
22nd Septemer – Sports afternoon
To get your blood pumping, we arranged an afternoon full of sports activities in order to not only exercise the body but also team work as a soft skill.
23rd September – Dinner + Welcome Party
Yeah, it’s that time, COMAP will help you close out this week in the best way possible, join us at our international dinner with buddies and COMAP.
After, because we want this Orientation Week to end with a bang, we’ll go to the club where you can dance and dance battle each other.
