      International introduction

      On this page you can find information about the Introduction Programme for international students at the University of Skövde. Due to covid-19 the following information is preliminary and may change depending on how the situation develops.

      Introduction Programme

      The Introduction Programme for international students begins several days before the semester starts. This fall, the introduction programme starts Monday, August 24, 2020. During the introduction you will get to know the University, the student support that we offer, the Student Union and the city of Skövde. You will go through the registration procedure, residence permits, course schedules, computer access and much more.

      In order to get the most out of your time at the University of Skövde, we have put together an Introduction Programme for you that we would like you to be a part of!

      Some activities and sessions which are not relevant for international degree seeking students, master and bachelor, are marked with *. Everything marked with grey background is compulsory for all students, which means that you must attend. Everything marked with grey text applies only for students attending the specific courses.

      The Introduction Programme consists of three parts:

      1. The academic part concerns your studies and this part is compulsory.
      2. The cultural part contains information to teach you more about Swedes and living in Sweden.
      3. The social part is information and activities to help you get to know other students and experience Sweden and the Swedish culture. The Student Union and the International Committee will inform you about the social activities that they will arrange for you. Most student activities are open to all members of the Student Union, so make sure that you pay your membership fee as soon as possible upon arrival in Skövde.

      If you miss parts of the Introduction Programme, then ask your classmates or the Student and Career Counsellors about what you missed. Regular classes begin Monday, August 31.
      Check your schedule so you do not miss any classes. Regular classes are always a priority.

      Depending on which courses or what programme you will study, you will belong to different schools:

      • School of Health Sciences
      • School of Business
      • School of Bioscience
      • School of Engineering Science
      • School of Informatics

      Knowing which school you belong to is very useful and, in some cases, necessary when communicating with the staff and students at the university.
