Welcome new students!
Congratulations on your admission to Uppsala University, the first university in Sweden. You have chosen a university that is leading the world in both research and education. Here, you will have the opportunity to shape your own future. Along the way, don’t forget to take advantage of everything that student life has to offer.
During spring 2020, teaching and assessment at Uppsala University has been carried out online, due to the outbreak of COVID-19. These recommendations ceased to apply on 16 June. Most courses in the autumn will therefore be given on campus, with certain digital elements.
