Intro week

To be a new student in Uppsala can be confusing and terrifying. It can be difficult to find your way around in a new city and the student life in Uppsala is unique and demands some knowledge to know your way around it. Therefore, Uppsala Politices association (Uppsala Politicesstuderande in swedish and UPS in short) arrange a welcome week for all new students. This way you will learn your way around the city and get to know your fellow classmates before the lectures even begin.

This years intro week, with the theme “Battle of the ages”, take place between the 24th of August until the 31th of August. This week will be full off competitions during the day and festivities during the night. Everything is arranged by so called “faddrar” – older students who have done nothing this past year except waiting to take care of you new students.
