Support for scholarship holders

When you are moving to Sweden there are many questions and things to consider and prepare. For scholarship holders certain conditions apply. We have put together information and an online guidance to help you settling down.

For Umeå University it is important that you are well informed and get the support you need, not only during the planning stage to come here but also during your introduction and your stay in Sweden.

Your host department is your first hand contact and will assist you with necessary documents and an introduction at the department. We are available for you as extra support if needed, and we are coordinating the introductory programme, Swedish courses and social activities. You are welcome to contact us if you have questions.
