Dates for the Arrival Week and Orientation Programme
In August the Orientation activities take place one week before the start of the semester.
In January the Orientation activities are in the afternoons and evenings of the first week of the semester.
A Swedish intensive course for beginners is offered during the Orientation Programme. It is offered free of charge to all exchange students.
The week before the Orientation Programme in August and the week before the start of the Spring semester in January, the volunteer students of the Luleå University Reception Committee (LURC) organise an Arrival Week. During this week, all exchange students will be met at the airport, train station or bus station by a member of LURC, provided you have sent them your arrival details. Please use the arrival form on the LURC homepage to send them your exact date and time of arrival. There you also find more detailed information and a forum with Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
Be sure to watch the digital Academic Workshop in the link below. The Academic Workshop deals with important information like course registration, exam registration and other important administrative issues that concern your studies.
