Study guidance and support

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

The Study Counsellors 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 during our drop-in hours, where we can sort out your immediate questions during a brief conversation. You may then book further guidance.

We can also provide study guidance and help you with your questions by telephone, e-mail or e-meeting.

The Study Advisor 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).

Student Health Service

The Student Health Service is available for all students at Umeå University.

During your time as a student at Umeå University, you can turn to the Student Health Service for questions regarding your mental or physical health, your social or study situation. The Student Health Service works as a complement to the Swedish public health system.

Aurora is a custom-made light and quiet room for rest and recovery available for all students, provided by the Student Health Service.
