We are delighted that you have chosen to apply to Umeå University, and look forward to seeing you this autumn! It has been an unusual spring, and although much is starting to return back to normal, not everything will be like it used to be this autumn. It is still just as important that we keep distance from each other, and moreover, education that is held on campus can be affected in different ways. For example, some parts of the teaching can take place online so that we do not all gather on campus at the same time.
The best way to stay updated on what is going on and how your studies may be affected is on the Student web. You will also find advice, tips and tools for studying and collaborating remotely. The pages are constantly updated as soon as new rules or recommendations are added.
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.Close
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.Close
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.
