Students with disabilities who have enrolled in higher education will receive forms of support that are directly related to their education according to need.
A disability coordinator with specific responsibility for disability issues is available to students with disabilities at Uppsala University. Students with disabilities are recommended to make contact with the disability coordinator in order to discuss their need of support as soon as possible.
Among the forms of support which may be considered for students with disabilities may be mentioned:
Sweden is probably one of the safest countries in the world and Uppsala is the pre-eminent university town. Our students live in a cultural setting with roots harking back several centuries and can experience student activities far beyond the ordinary. They live the traditional life of a student, both every day and on festive occasions in student housing corridors and at student social clubs, called nations. Ball gowns and tie-and-tails elegance jostles with discos and pubs, and theater groups are just as self-evident as floor ball teams. Read more about student nations.
As a student you have access to modern facilities in well equipped labs, libraries and lecture rooms. Free Wi-Fi is available on all campuses. Our nine campus areas are spread over town and the 13 student nations and their activities are also very visible signs of our presence in town. Another telltale sign is all the bicycling students coming from all over the world. Have a look at our ampus areas.
Swedish people are in general very easygoing and informal. It's not uncommon to have a fika with your professor in the campus café and office doors are usually open. We do our best to help you and try to give you as good a study experience as possible. That doesn't mean you don't have to work for your degree. On the contrary, Uppsala is a very demanding university but the rewards are great.
As a student at Uppsala University you will take responsibility for your own success and often work in a group with fellow students on subject specific problems and tasks. Your professors will be there to share their knowledge and guide you, but expect the relative freedom and your own responsibility for your studies to be a bit different from what you are used to. The social and problem solving skills you gain while studying for your masters degree will be a valuable asset in your future career.
