Help! I cannot attend the FPN Introduction Days

The FPN Introduction Days is a mandatory event for which you will receive ECTS. Education at our faculty starts on 29 August, therefore if you miss the introduction you'll be forced to do an extra assignment in order to catch up with our fellow students. Keep in mind that the weeks after the introduction will be filled with new impressions and work to get you off to a good start, so we urge you to attend the FPN Introduction Days.
