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 before the start of each term.
The Orientation consists of a series of lectures and activities that are designed to help you to 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. We strongly recommend that you arrive in time to take part in the Orientation.
The Autumn term 2018 Orientation will be held 29 August. Programme is to be announced.
