The Umeå University Survival Guide

In the Survival Guide we have gathered information that will be useful for international students who intend to study at Umeå University, as well as students who have already begun their studies. These pages do not contain information regarding study applications or the admission process. Please look under "Application Process" for this kind of information.

The different parts of the student handbook are meant to guide you through your "student career" at Umeå University, that is, from before you arrive and through your entire stay in Umeå. Whatever your student status is, we hope that you will find all the information you need in this all-encompassing guidebook. If you would like to print out the information in the guidebook, use the "Print page" symbol.
