Orientation weeks/days


The University of Namur organizes before the fall semester of each academic year, so approximately during the period from Sep1-14, two weeks of orientation. Before each winter semester, we organize three days of orientation from approximately Feb1-3. This is done in collaboration with the Pole Academique de Namur, which is network of all higher education institutions in the province of Namur.

The orientation weeks/days (click on the link for specifics on the 2019 event which will take place from Sep 3-13, 2019) are organized to give incoming students the opportunity to "acclimatize' to their new environment and therefore to get to know the city of Namur and its surroundings before the semester begins. In addition to French and English language classes, the orientation weeks offer a wide range of social, cultural and touristic activities to help students in that process.

Below you will find a few short videos produced by participating students of the 2017 and 2018 orientation weeks.
It looks like they had a very good time!!
