The TRANSMED studies start on 4 September 2017 with a Faculty orientation session in Seminar room 1-2, Biomedicum Helsinki, Haartmaninkatu 8, Helsinki at 9.00 am. Biomedicum Helsinki is located in the Meilahti Campus - public transport with several buses and tram no 4.

The UH Welcome Fair for new international students of the Faculty of Medicine is arranged on the previous week, Tuesday 29 August at 12 noon - 1 pm. Student tutors will help all new TRANSMEDs in the accommodation to the Faculty, the TRANSMED programme and the living in Helsinki in general.

During the first week, all students will also have academic counselling about studies, teaching methods, assessment criteria and practices, ethical guidelines in studies, and the curriculum.
