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 just before the start of each semester.

The Orientation consists of a series of lectures and activities that are designed to help you become acquainted with life in Umeå and studies at our university. It also offers a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

Orientation Autumn 2022 consists of three parts:

  • a series of short films on this website
  • a digital webinar on 18 August plus a physical meeting in Aula Nordica on campus Umeå on 25 August
  • social activities, organised by the Buddy Programme. More information will be presented during the afternoon in Aula Nordica, and posted on the Buddy Programme Facebook page and sent by email to those who have signed up to the Buddy Programme.

Preliminary programme will be published here no later than June.
