Incoming student

Welcome to the University of Gothenburg!

Are you an international student admitted at the University of Gothenburg for the autumn term 2015? On these pages you will find relevant information that can help you prepare for your arrival and stay in Gothenburg.

International students are often referred to as exchange student or free mover student (degree seeking student). Some procedures, such as the application process, differ between the two groups. However, the Arrival and Welcome Programme information concern both groups. 

Besides the information you will find on these pages, make sure to read your pre-arrival emails from the University. In April, we will publish a list of the important emails you should be receiving, including the approximate date you should receive them.

For questions, contact welcomeprogramme@gu.se 

What type of student am I?

An exchange student comes to the University of Gothenburg through an exchange agreement. The student usually stays here one or two semesters.

A free mover student is an international student that applies for courses or full programmes without involvement from another University.
