Online registration in the student website is open between the 11th to the 18th of January, 2021. It is important that you sign in to the student website and register during this time period, otherwise you lose your place on the course. Here you can find instructions:
To start the course, you must be admitted and then registered to the course. Log-in to the learning platform as soon as possible after you have registered, to allow yourself time to become familiar with how it functions and access the introductory information available there. The first session, listed above, will be held in Zoom. The link to this session will be provided on the learning platform.
With this course we use the learning platform Moodle. Once you have registered you will get access to the course site. Due to recommendations regarding distancing during the ongoing pandemic, modules that normally would be carried out on campus may be carried out via the learning platform and/or video conferencing tools. Any decisions about this will be made based on the module’s requirements and Umeå University’s priorities.
From 2 November, most of the previous COVID measures are lifted – welcome back to campus! However, things will not go back to normal straight away. For instance, some parts of your education may still take place online.
Since the return to campus is planned by those responsible for your education, you will receive more detailed information regarding your studies from your department.
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).
As a new student, you need to activate your user account approximately two weeks prior to the term start in order to, for instance:
access the internet in computer labs and the university's wireless network
register for courses
submit assignments and verify your study results
access your student e-mail
If you are a new student, you will automatically receive a user account when you are admitted, but you will need to activate it for it to function properly. You will not be able to activate it until approximately two weeks prior to the term start.
The website for current students has all sorts of information about services, support, legal and practical matters at Umeå University. You can sign in to the learning platforms, see your schedule and course overview, register for a course, get a study certificate, apply for a degree or sign up for an examination.
