The International Committee (IntU) of the Student Union of the School of Business, Economics and Law cooperates together with the International Office at Handels. Together we welcome and care for all the incoming exchange students at our faculty.
IntU creates a social platform for exchange students, internationals and domestics and makes sure that all international students have the best time possible in Gothenburg and at Handels. In order to achieve this IntU arranges several events throughout the semesters, everything from sport events and city excursions to dinner parties and pub hang outs.
Incoming exchange students at Handels are provided with a two week-long welcome program arranged by IntU at the beginning of each semester – the Welcome Weeks. The exchange students get divided into teams, which are assigned two to three student buddies and by a variety of daily activities we kick-start the exchange semester at Handels together.
IntU’s main mission is to work with the internationalization within HHGS and the goal is to make international students feel welcome and included in the student union’s activities. Furthermore, IntU also provides domestic and international students an opportunity to meet and interact with each other, which gives the students the possibility to make friends across borders.
The international committee consists of:
- Vice President & Head of Education
- Head of Treasury
- Head of Marketing
- Head of Communication
- Head Buddy
- Head of Events
- Event Coordinators
- Student Buddies
IntU recruits twice a year, at the end of the spring semester and at the end of the fall semester. If you are interested in being a part of IntU – keep an eye on our Facebook page ”IntU – Gothenburg” during these periods.
The Facebook page ”IntU – Gothenburg” is also the Committee’s main social media, where all information about IntU is posted. For example, IntU publish all upcoming events on this page and also upload all photos here.
