Distance and Web-based Education
Distance and web-based education can be a good alternative for those who have family, a job or if you have a disability that makes it more difficult to move or to study full-time. There are many distance and web-based courses to choose from at Umeå University.
For those who are unable to study here in Umeå, it is possible to take Web-based courses that are carried out completely online. Therefore, you obtain university level credits anyplace in the world that suits your own schedule.
Distance courses are those that require you to participate in a few on-campus meetings (typically held on the main campus in Umeå).
