Moving to a new country with an unfamiliar language, culture and customs can be a challenge. We would like to help you and ease that challenge so that you can focus on your studies. Therefore, we would like to offer you the possibility to take part in our Orientation Course, which begins before the start of each term.
The Orientation Course consists of a series of lectures and activities that are designed to help you to become acquainted with life in Umeå and studies at our university. The course also offers a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. We strongly recommend that you arrive in time to take part in the Orientation Course. Please see the latest Orientation Course Schedule for more information on what happens during the course. The Orientation Course Schedule for the coming term will be available on this site one month before the beginning of the term. There can be last minute changes in the schedule, therefore you should always pick up a new schedule from the International Office after your arrival in Umeå.
