Incoming student

Welcome to the University of Gothenburg!

Are you an international student admitted for spring semester 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 an exchange student or free mover student. Sometimes the procedures are different between the two groups, for example the application process. 

Please note that 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, including the following:

Early December: Welcome email from the University with information about the Welcome Programme and how to prepare for your stay in Gothenburg.
Contact welcomeprogramme@gu.se if you have not received it.
December or January: Email regarding admission to courses and registration procedures sent by your department. Contact your faculty if you have not received it.
12 January: Moving in information for all students renting from Student Housing Services as well as pick-up information for all students who are registered for the pick-up service.
Contact studenthousing@gu.se if you have not received it.

What type of student am I?

An exchange student comes to the University of Gothenburg through an exchange agreement. The student is here for a limted amount of time usually one or two semesters.

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