Film: New international students welcomed
Over 1,300 new international students were welcomed to Stockholm University during our arrival days and welcome events at the start of the new term.
Choosing Stockholm University for studies
Meet some of our new students on their first day with us, some of them new to Stockholm, Sweden – and Europe! – and listen to what they have to say about choosing Stockholm as their study destination.
"One of my top three countries", "Scandinavian values", "university life" "deepening knowledge", and to "bring about change" are some of the reasons to why the students have chosen Stockholm University for their studies.
Welcome acitivies in Stockholm
New students were invited to participate in Orientation Day to learn more about university life in Stockholm and Sweden. The event in Aula Magna included presentations from the Library, the Student Health Services, the Sports Centre, and the Academic Writing Service. Activities included a campus tour, a sightseeing tour in Stockholm, and a visit to IKEA. Joint sports and social events were also held on campus.
At Stockholm Arlanda Airport free shuttle buses were available for newly arrived students, who could go directly from the airport to campus to meet with the Housing office who provided keys and accommodation information.
Our green campus is now filled again with students, which is how it should be!
