TILL DIG SOM ÄR ANTAGEN PÅ KURSEN
Welcome to Umeå University and the Departments of Chemistry and Molecular Biology. The Departments of Chemistry and Molecular Biology hosts scientists, teachers and students from many different countries. The international and interdisciplinary environment is well appreciated and provides the basis for an internationally competitive research in the field of Life Science.
First, we wish to remind you to reply to your Notification of Selection Results at universityadmissions.se or antagning.se, so that you do not lose your place on the programme. If you have any questions, you are most welcome to contact us at any time. You will find our contact information at the end of this letter.

The Bachelor Program in Life Science is an international programme and therefore given in English. The programme starts with a course in Biological Chemistry (15 ECTS) specifically developed for the program to highlight applications of Chemistry and Molecular Biology to Life Science. This course is followed during the first year by three courses in Chemistry; Fundamentals of Chemistry (15 ECTS), Biochemistry (15 ECTS) and Bioorganic Chemistry (15 ECTS).
The second year consists of four courses in Molecular Biology; Microbiology and Basic Molecular Biology (15 ECTS), Basic and molecular genetics (15 ECTS, Cell biology (15 ECTS) and Animal and plant physiology (15 ECTS). The third year includes 45 ECTS of optional courses and a Bachelor Degree Thesis Project (15 ECTS) in either Chemistry (English, Swedish) or Molecular Biology (English, Swedish). If you have questions or concerns regarding individual courses please contact the Study Counsellors.
You will be offered an introductory course in mathematics prior to the start of the program. More information about this will be sent out later.
The university organizes an Orientation course for new international students during the week preceding the start of the semester, starting late August. We recommend all students to take part in this preparatory activity. A schedule for the orientation course will be posted on the International Office web site later.
You also have the opportunity to sign up for the Buddy Programme. The Buddy Programme is an opportunity for you to get in contact with Swedish culture and traditions and meet Swedish and other international students during your stay in Umeå. Buddies are Swedish students who volunteer to introduce you to the Swedish way of life. As a participant in the Buddy Program, you will be part of a buddy group that consists of buddies and international students. The Buddy Program will give you the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, for example, sports, parties and travel.
Accommodation in Umeå
As Swedish universities do not own any housing, students are expected to arrange their accommodation. If you have not already found a place to live in Umeå, there is information and tips at our website: http://www.umu.se/english/education/accommodation. We recommend you read this information and start registering for housing as soon as possible.
Recommended arrival times
International students are recommended to arrive at least a few days before the start of the regular term (preferably to the orientation course, see above). If you fail to arrive on time, you have to contact the study counselor as soon as possible but not later than one week ahead of the course start, or you may not be able to register on the program. When you plan your trip, please arrange so that you do not arrive on a weekend or late at night. The student services office as well as most of the University will be closed, and you may have difficulties e.g. getting a key to student housing.
Studying with disabilities
If you are in need of special support due to disability, you should apply for that in good time before you start your studies. Find more information on support for studying with disabilities at: www.student.umu.se/english/during-your-studies/support-for-disabled-students
