Orientation for fresh international students supplements the general orientation provided by the university for all students. This is designed to help fresh students become familiar with campus life, learn more about their academic programmes, the resources and facilities available to make their stay in the university and the Tanzanian society a comfortable one.
For each academic semester, the orientation for new International students begins on the Second Day of that particular Semester.
All International Students are provided with the pre-arrival and orientation guide. It provides practical guidance on coming to live and study in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania from an international student perspective and information on some of the University's support services. Its intention is to complement other sources of guidance that International Students are likely to receive as part of their induction from different units.
