ABOUT US

International Week network called IWCO consist of 26 member organizationsInternational Weeks (IW). Each IW is organized by the local students and hosts from member student unions. During the IW there are many opportunities for the exchange of ideas and information amongst the international participants.

Every IW is based on 4 pillars: business, culture, academic, social exchange. Each scope covers various activities that take place during International Week and which participants have the opportunity to experience.

Although each week is flavored by the local culture, other nations are conveyed through activities such as the International Dinner in which each participant prepares a traditional dish from their country and presents it with a personal story. Through this a real exchange takes place.

The social potential of the IWs is great and many friendships, important connections and social networks are created through these weeks.
