Pre-study checklist

To help you understand what you need to do before the start of the semester, we've created a checklist that covers all the essentials.

Before you move to Sweden

If you're an international student, there are several things you should know and do before you move here. Learn about residence permits, student housing and other things to prepare for your arrival in Gothenburg on Planning your stay on

Things to do before your studies start

This list consists of general information that applies to all new students. There may be additional information specific to your education which you will receive from your department or faculty.

Scroll down for information from your department!

Much of the information on the Student Portal applies to all students, but there is often additional information that is only relevant to students studying at a specific department or faculty. You can find this information at the bottom of the pages on the Student Portal.

When you are logged into the Student Portal with your student account, additional information from the faculty and department your a programme or course belongs to will automatically be displayed.

Disability study support

All students at the University of Gothenburg should have the conditions to succeed in their studies. If you have a long-term documented disability, you can receive disability study  designed by a coordinator at the University.
