International Student

Being an international student and studying in a foreign country is not always easy, it can many times be difficult and confusing. But apart from those times, it is an exciting experience filled with new friendships, new cultures, fun activities and memories for life.

Since Umeå is going to be your new home for a time, it is important for us that you feel comfortable and safe here, and that you get as much as possible out of your stay! That is why you should get involved with HHUS and our activities. Below you will find activities that we offer all international students studying at the Umeå School of business.

Participating in HHUS and other university activities or organizations
Learning more about Swedish cultures (through baking, fika, movies etc.)
