Study abroad information autumn 2022

Activities offered by the International Office

During semesters, we offer a number of information sessions where we provide information on how studies abroad, field studies and internships abroad can become part of your education at Uppsala University.

You are always welcome to contact our international officers with questions, by e-mail or by our drop-in service. You may also book an appointment with our officer at Campus Gotland, Ms. Annika Jörnemark. During application periods we offer Extra support for questions.

On our website on international opportunities, there are written manuals on how to apply for each application type, and for some of the steps in the applications, there are also recorded instructional videos.

In addition to this, we offer programme specific information sessions to student groups upon request from programme coordinators.

General information sessions – autumn 2022

Starting September, we offer a number of webinars on various opportunities regarding studies abroad. Each session includes a presentation and some time for questions, and in most cases follows a drop-in session for one-on-one conversation with one of our officers. The information sessions are usually held in English to accommodate all students.

Please note that pre-registration is required to receive a Zoom-link to each webinar. Check our calendar for seminar topics and registration.

Link to the drop-in session will be provided during the webinars and is the same as the regular drop-in link.

Study Abroad Ambassador's seminars

The Study Abroad Ambassadors hired by the Unit for International Mobilty have experience from studying and doing internships abroad. They plan a couple of sessions this autumn. Let them inspire you and share their advice about applying. Details to be decided and will be published in our calendar.

Book a programme specific information session

Ask your programme coordinator to contact us to book an information session designed for your programme. Annika Jörnemark and Sandra Johansson are happy to provide an overview of exchange opportunities and financing for field studies or traineeships, depending on what each programme has requested us to focus on.
