The pandemic has caused an uncertainty regarding how teaching and examination can be carried out in the near future, and we ask for your understanding in not being able to give you promises on how you will conduct your studies during your stay in Umeå. The university takes the health and safety of our students and staff seriously and we adapt our activities based upon the current spread of infection. This means that parts of your studies may take place online. Our priority is to ensure high quality education and provide access to campus to those activities that must be conducted in person.
The best way to stay updated and learn how your studies may be affected is on the student web.
Follow this simple list of things to complete your enrolment at Umeå University. It includes: how to secure housing, getting a residence permit (for citizens from outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland), tuition payment (if applicable), travel directions and more.
International students are recommended to arrive at least a few days before the start of the regular term, preferably prior to the Orientation. If you fail to arrive on time, you have to contact the study counselor as soon as possible, but not later than one week ahead of the course start, or you may not be able to register for the programme.
If you will have housing through the International Housing Office you will receive information about your arrival in your offer of housing.
Don't forget - Umeå has cold winters, so pack accordingly with a warm jacket, warm shoes, gloves and hat.
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, which begins a few days before the start of the term (Autumn) or the same day as the term starts (Spring).
