Umeå University

Formally established in 1965, Umeå University is a comprehensive university covering research and education in medicine, science and technology, social sciences, arts and humanities, and educational sciences. Our cohesive campus environment enables a dynamic and open culture with a strong sense of community. As a knowledge-driven organisation, Umeå University is striving to provide students and staff with unique opportunities for learning and development – whilst simultaneously serving society with new knowledge and creative citizens.

One of the most special things we have done is a dogsledding tour, in which we all got our own sleigh with three huskey dogs, with which we made a beautiful journey towards a large waterfall through an amazing winter wonderland.
