Study guidance

If you are looking to start studying or already are a student, the university provides study guidance and counselling.

A study counsellor can help you with...

  • information about studies offered at Umeå University
  • information about eligibility and admission procedures
  • evaluation of foreign upper-secondary education
  • individual guidance for you to be able to plan your future studies

Visit us in Infocenter during our drop-in hours, where we can sort out your immediate questions during a brief conversation.

Regular drop-in hours for study guidance

Monday-Friday 12:00-13:30

Closed all holidays, weekends and days between a holiday and a weekend, and when Infocenter is closed.

Closed 2-3 October

Due to that the EU Arctic Forum are using the premises, there are no drop-in hours for study guidance on 2 and 3 October.

Study guidance before last application date 15 October

During the period 7-13 and 14-15 October, our drop-in hours are 10:00 to 15:00.

You may also book an appointment for in-depth guidance by sending a message using the contact form below. If doing so, please describe in the message the matter you want to address, and if you would prefer having the counselling session in Infocenter, via video call (Skype), telephone or via e-mail.

Study advisors for programmes and courses

If you have any questions about a degree programme or a single-subject course in your specific field of study, you are welcome to contact the study advisor in your department.

A study advisor provides more detailed information and guidance in relation to the department's own degree programmes and single-subject courses. For example, course selections within a programme, the course literature, exams, and options after studying a certain programme.

These study advisors are presented under "Contact Information" for each course or programme in the on-line catalogue (Master Programmes, Undergraduate Programmes and Courses).
