Initiative for newcomers and integration
Uppsala University has knowledge in a number of important areas relevant to the current situation with many newcomers in Sweden. We have different opportunities for continuing professional development. There are also opportunities aimed directly at newcomers. In several projects we collaborate closely with other actors in society.
Study programmes and continuing professional development
Uppsala University organises a number of educational activities relating to newcomers and integration. These activities are aimed both at newcomers and at Swedish employees who meet newcomers as part of their job.
