Personal recommendation
It is great. There are many Swedish students from the South that go up to live and study in Umeň because the atmosphere is more personal. There were also some exchange students that chose to stay longer during their stay and earn a double degree. It says something about how nice the student/social life is.

Get a membership card from IKSU. It's very cheap and good facilities. Sports is very popular in Sweden. Fika is too. This is drinking coffee and eating cake every single day! Unhealthy, so you will need to get the IKSU membership card ;-) Be aware of the short amount of daylight during autumn/winter. Go home for Christmas and during summer time. Hardly anyone will stay in Umeň so the city that has about 1/3 of students will seem dead. Be aware of the amount of snowfall (6 months a year). It can be very slippery in the last months of winter and the first months of spring! It takes long to disappear completely. Be aware of the Swedish drinking habits. They are quite shy (they say the further up North you go, the shyer they get). This is why they drink heaps when going out and they might get a bit annoying.

I realised the courses were specifically chosen to the taste of the students with respect to their future careers and I couldn't have asked for anything better than that. The teachers were so friendly and there existed a bond between us and I felt at home and confident. It is a great place to be and a great experience in life for international students. It is welcomÝng, cozy and accademicaly strong. I'll want my kid someday to have this very experience if I get lucky to have one.

My overall experience here in Umeň has been really excellent, as I can say. I learnt so much from other students, the local folks around and most of all the accademic culture was just perfect for me. I could travel internationally at cheaper rates and had international excursions organised by the school for international students. The city of Umeň is small and friendly and provides the necessary tools and requirements for a perfect study environment. Honestly, I haven't been to one better than this yet and you can study while catching some fun alongside. I loved it so much and it has been a big and wonderful experience in my life.

Don't take more than one finance course at the same time, the workload is pretty big.

Try to see as much of Stockholm and Sweden as you can. The service for exchange students at the university is very good. The student association arranges a lot of travelling and sightseeing, just ask them for more details.

Sweden is a very nice country. It's easy to travel there. In winter you can visit the Ice Hotel upnorth. You can do dogsledge, snowmobile, ski, ice skate, and visit very nice cities like Stockholm, Malm÷ or Goteborg and other very nice wild places. And enjoy Northern lights

they are really good at natural sciences - especially in fields of geography (really good GIS courses), environmental protection and biotechnology.

Don't miss the opportunity to travel around Sweden, Norway, Finland, Russia and the Baltic countries, you won't regret it! Just remember that Finland is the "cheapest" country and Norway the most expensive one (Sweden stands in between!).
