About us

Support for internationals is shared between the departments and the International Faculty and Staff Services. Your host department is your first hand contact at Uppsala University. They will assist you with many of the practical arrangements before and upon arrival in Uppsala or Gotland.

The International Faculty and Staff Services provide complementary and in-depth support and information to international researchers, lecturers, doctoral students and administrative staff. We also organise a number of activities, including introduction seminars, information meetings, Swedish courses, social activities, guided tours and the Vice-Chancellor’s reception. When you arrive at Uppsala we would be happy see you join our group for international employees in the University’s staff portal, "Medarbetarportalen". Here we will post about coming activities and events which will help you get to know your new surroundings and other international employees.

Uppsala University’s International Faculty and Staff Services is a EURAXESS Centre. EURAXESS – Researchers in Motion is a unique pan-European initiative delivering information and support services to professional researchers.

Uppsala University has a collaboration with Uppsala International Hub (UIH). UIH provides information about moving to, living in and working in Uppsala. They also organize events for internationals in Uppsala, such as guided tours, after works, informational seminars etc. To subscribe to their newsletter and get updates about their upcoming events, register your email address at their registration link (
