Orientation for Exchange Students for the First Semester of Academic Year 2014/2015
The Student Affairs Office organized a series of orientation activities to welcome 70 exchange students from Portugal, Mainland China and Taiwan for the first semester of academic year 2014/2015, between the 19th and 24th August.
The students started to arrive in Macao on 18th August, the Student Affairs Office greeting them at Macao International Airport, Macao Ferry Terminal and the Border Gate with welcome packs and escorting them to their student dormitories. As well as important information about the Institute the welcome packs contained practical gifts such as a universal travel plug, plastic folders, and maps and information about Macao provided by the Tourist Office. The exchange students were then assisted in registering, opening bank accounts, grocery shopping, and taken to the hospital for their medical examination.
To familiarize the exchange students with the facilities and various departments of our Institute a campus tour was arranged, as well as a visit to the Gaming Teaching and Research Center and information sessions on computers and the network from the 19th to 21st August. A welcome dinner was arranged on 22nd August to introduce the School Directors to the exchange students to enable them to get to know each other.
