New Student at University of Gävle

The University of Gävle is happy to welcome you as a new student. We hope you have a great time here and wish you the best of luck with your studies!

COVID-19 and the ongoing pandemic

The spread of the coronavirus is a unique situation with consequences that affect our society, and the rest of the world. Regarding teaching format this spring semester 2021, the University of Gävle has taken the decision that programmes will be taught in the announced format, but with adaptations to the pandemic. Course modules that can’t be carried out safely will be taught remotely. Please note a new decision could be made if the situation worsens closer to January 2021.

Moving to Sweden

If you are a non-EU citizen you need to apply for a residence permit. Start the process of applying for a residence permit as soon as possible. This can be a slow process and take several months. It is therefore good to get started as soon as possible!
