Each incoming mobility has a contact person at Uppsala University to whom they can turn to for questions. For BA/MA students the immediate process after being accepting deals with the application of a residence permit. Uppsala University will issue an admissions letter and send the original along with instructions on how to apply. We can in severe cases use our good connections with the Swedish Migration Board and fast track a permit.
For exchange students we will also prepare the courses taken during the mobility. The learning agreement should be set and signed before the arrival of the student.
All incoming mobility will be offered accommodation in student dorms for a period of up to 12 months. If they will be staying longer they can sign up for a waiting list and will have no problem finding new housing after 12 months.
Starting in the end of July there is an intensive language course (Swedish) offered for BA/MA students. The same course is again offered during the semesters for those who could not participate during summer. There is also an English language course offered during semesters.
Along with the Swedish course in summer students are also offered a cultural program in the week-ends. These programs include traveling in the Uppsala-Stockholm region. Extra guided tours are also offered in the beginning of the fall semester.
During the semesters students will also be involved with a great number of student activities organized by the student union and the student. Students take pride in introducing each other to cultural events and more than one organization will go to great efforts to celebrate for example St Lucia (December 13), The Nobel price ceremony (including guest lectures by the current year's Nobel price winners, Last day of April (Welcoming of spring), Christmas (one of the nations have a great tradition of holding a huge Christmas celebration for anyone in Uppsala who happens to spend Christmas alone. Many exchange students chose to volunteer or participate), New Years etc.
Students are in regular contact with their professors at the university and through seminars and lectures they will be updated on their progress in each course. The International Office will also check for progress at the end of each semester. Should a student not reach the minimum credits we will discuss what has happened and if we can agree on a solution whether it be taking courses in a lower level or taking fewer courses.
All Erasmus Mundus Action 2 projects where Uppsala University is partner is administered and managed by the central level of the university administration. This means that BA/MA students arriving for 1-2 semesters will be integrated in the same welcoming program as all other exchange students
Students at BA/MA level are offered a summer course in Swedish starting late July. There is a cultural program in connection with the course. This course grants them 7,5 ECTS and will finish before the start of the semester. Students are offered to keep studying Swedish at a higher level during the semester.
For all exchange students we will require that a learning agreement has been signed before their arrival, making sure that there will be no problems getting the credits earned transferred back to their home university.
