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 2021 consists of three parts:
a series of short films on this website
three digital events (in Zoom) 25-27 August
social activities, organised by the Buddy Programme. More information will be presented during the webinar on 25 August, posted on the Buddy Programme Facebook page and sent by email to those who have signed up to the Buddy Programme.
Orientation Programme webinars
The three Orientation webinars each has a separate theme. You have the chance to get to know more about studies and student life at Umeå University, the city of Umeå and ask questions.
