Welcome to Uppsala University and Visby!

Regarding COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, some courses and programmes will be given on campus (with certain digital elements) this autumn, while some will be given as distance education. Log in to the Student Portal to get information about what applies to your course or programme.

Keep yourself updated on the University's Q&A-page regarding COVID-19.

If you are a current student at Uppsala University, you will be able to register for courses yourself in the Student portal. Current student? Welcome back!

If you are a new student WITH a Swedish personal identity number, your registration is made in two steps: 

  1. Activate your student account.
  2. Log in and register in the Student Portal. Once you have registered you will get a confirmation via e-mail within a couple of days. You may register for your courses from 1 August.

If you are a new student WITHOUT a Swedish personal identity number, the activation of your student account and registration is made in three steps: 

  1. In order to send you a onetime passcode, email servicedesk@uu.se a copy of your valid passport (or identifiction valid in Sweden) and a copy of a utility bill addressed to you, for example a phone bill, rent or similar that can confirm your home address to request for a simplified ID verification. It can't be older than 6 months. If you don't posses any of these documents, please contact servicedesk@uu.se regardless.
  2. The Service Desk reviews the documents and will contact you if any futher information is required and with further instructions regarding how to activate your account.
  3. From 1 August, you can register for the course or courses of the programme that you are admitted to in the Student Portal.

Please note that it may take up to 24 hours after registration before you can access our learning platform (LMS) Studium.

Recommended arrival days for new international students

26 and 27 August, we offer a welcome service and shuttle service at Visby airport and Visby ferry terminal between 11:30 and 19:30. Note: this service is only for those who registered by 16 august. We will take measures according to the number of participants and the COVID-19 pandemic situation in August. The current restrictions in place in Sweden specifically limit gatherings to no more than 50 persons, and social distancing is required.

Admitted Bachelor's students:

During the drop-in hours (see below), you can pick up your welcome folder, and if you didn’t activate your student account and register for your courses as described above, you may do this at the Student Services Office (building D - first floor). However, due to the current situation with the coronavirus, we would recommend you to activate your account and register according to above.

Admitted Master's students:Reception desk at Campus Gotland

During the drop-in hours (see below), you can pick up your welcome folder, and if you didn’t activate your student account and register for your courses as described above, you may do this at the Student Services Office (building D - first floor). However, due to the current situation with the coronavirus, we would recommend you to activate your account and register according to above.

If you have been admitted to a Master’s programme, there is a condition that you will have completed your Bachelor’s degree by the start of the programme. This is usually proven by showing a physical copy of your degree certificate or diploma to your programme coordinator at registration on the first day of classes.

However, due to the current situation with Covid-19, we instead ask that you upload your diploma and complete transcript to your account at Universityadmissions.se as soon as you’ve received them. If you have applied for your bachelor’s degree but not yet received it, upload a signed letter from the graduation office at your home university that you have applied for such a degree and fulfill all necessary requirements. You will not be able to register for your programme until your Bachelor’s degree has been verified. In addition to this, please also bring the documents to Sweden when you arrive here.

Drop-in hours

Visit the Student Services Office on the first floor in house D at campus during our drop-in hours (se below). If you prefer an e-meeting, join us in a Zoom meeting room instead (joinable during drop-in hours).

It is recommended that new international students attend the Orientation Day, Friday 28 August between 09:00 and 14:00. Please assemble about 10 minutes before in the reception area on Campus (main entrance, Cramérgatan 3).

The Orientation Day programme is designed to welcome and introduce international students to the university, Campus Gotland, and to Visby. We will begin with about two hours information, seated in the campus restaurant Maltfabriken, including a break for coffee/tea, and will then proceed with guiding you around the premises, as well as introduce you to the library and to Rindi, in smaller groups.

You will be informed about the resources available to you as a student, along with other useful tips to assist and guide you through your stay. Information about the courses in Basic Swedish will also be presented.
