IMI Beach Party

26 August 2019

Our August intake saw us welcome new students from all across the globe who were treated to our customary BIG welcome at the 2019C BIG Week...

We love Summer time here in Switzerland, whether it is swimming in the lake or staying cool at the top of a mountain.

For our August intake, we decided to celebrate the Summer spirit with a 'Beach Party' theme for our BIG Week.

Our new students enjoyed a range of sessions and activities to welcome them to the school and provide them with important information regarding their time with us and their academic programme.

From being picked-up at the airport and transported to campus to their check-in and arrival, IMI staff were on hand with a friendly greeting and determination to ensure the students' first moments in Switzerland were as stress-free as possible.

During the check-in weekend, we provided campus and city tours so that our new arrivals could get to know their surroundings better and become more familiar with the beautiful, historic city of Luzern.

BIG Week itself kicked off with the usual BIG Breakfast where all new students and staff joined together on the Monday morning for a good feed to set us up for the activities and fun ahead.

The first few days involved lots of information sessions where students learnt about the school's rules and regulations, met staff members from the different departments and were briefed on their courses and how to access important academic resources.

We also invited a Swiss bank and a SIM card provider onto campus to make it ever easier for the students to get set up with a Swiss bank account and phone contract. 

As well as all the important life-logistics, there was also plenty of time for fun and games. Students got the chance to try out their Swiss-German pronunciation during our Swissness session, they were taken on a virtual journey around the globe during our BIG Beach Quiz and they got to fast-track the icebreaking stage at our special Speed (Friendship) Dating event.

The week went past in a blur but all our new arrivals seem well settled on campus and ready to start their studies. We would like to offer a big thank you to all our student volunteers who helped with the various BIG Week activities - here's to another fantastic, action-packed term at IMI!
