You have been admitted. If you want to keep your place (seat), you do not have to reply to your offer. If you do not want to keep your place you should decline your offer by logging in to 'My pages' on universityadmissions.se, and follow the instructions.
We use web registration which means you will register yourself on the programme and the courses you have been admitted to. Registration period is 24 August-7 September. Register as soon as you can, however no later than the 7th of September. If you don't register in time you risk losing your study place.
In order to be able to register you need to activate your Umu-id (user account). Further down this page you find information how you do that. After you have activated your Umu-id you can go ahead and register. See this page: https://www.umu.se/en/student/my-studies/register-for-courses/ and follow the link about self registration on the student website, under Course registration you find a guide.
Introduction - We start the term with common information for you as a new student and gather all master programme students. You will get further infomation about the introduction as you come to the school. Our head of department Katrin Holmqvist-Sten will welcome everyone and you will meet the other staff members. Moreover there will be specific information that concerns only your class such as the autumn term courses, planned workshops etc.
Schedule - Before the term starts we will send out a schedule for the first week of the term where you will get a chance to acquaint yourself with the school, the Arts Campus, Umeå University and the city of Umeå.
Thank you for choosing Umeå University! We really look forward to seeing you. Until October, most of the teaching at the university will take place online. But the library group study rooms and study spaces are open from the start of the semester. Please remember to keep your distance when using these spaces.
The exact plan for the rest of the autumn semester has not yet been decided. At some point this autumn, we will likely all be able to meet on campus again, but the way back needs to be gradual. The university is planning on reaching a new decision about the autumn semester in mid-August. Unfortunately, we can’t give you any clear information about how your specific education will be affected quite yet. But stay updated through 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).

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.
