At Umeå University you can choose from 150 programs and nearly 2,000 courses. It is not always easy to know what to study. All education consists of courses, you can either read independently or within a program.

All education is divided into three levels where both rates to programs and degrees are either basic, advanced or graduate level. These must be read in a specific order as they build on each other. It is required that you have passed the previous course to be qualified to the next. The studies listed in credits (hp) and 1.5 credits equivalent to a one-week full-time study. One semester thus generates 30 hp. You can also read courses at a distance or with a lower rate of study and take fewer credits per semester.
