Congratulations! You are accepted to Malmö University! Welcome to your new student city Malmö!

We know it can be with mixed feelings you start your study time, it is fun to start studying, move to a new city and meet new people, but we also know that it is not always easy to settle down in a new place.

As a new student, there is a lot to keep track of in the beginning of a new semester; Where will I live? What is there to do as a student in Malmö? When will the intro weeks “Insparken” begin? (autumn) Who can help me if I have problems? Don’t worry, all of these questions and many more can be answered by our fantastic Survival Guide! We have put together our essential tips to make it easier for you during your first time as a new student in Malmö.

It may be hard to be brand new at university but we are here to help you correct! Here we have put up a checklist so that you as a new student can enter the study life as quickly as possible and correct.
