The program includes a welcoming session at which students are given basic information regarding their stay and a presentation about the Spanish culture. The welcome sessions are also made up of a tour of the main Fundación services and several excursions to the city and the region. Taking part in these activities is extremely helpful to exchange students as it facilitates integration and the subsequent stay.
