New Opportunities


One can guarantee a few things in this life. For example, after spring comes summer, the leaves turn yellow in the fall, a new season of Swedish Idol will be broadcasted and that every fall new and old students come back to Umeå to learn something new which then can be used in the future.

Umeå Medical Student Union (UMS) welcome you all back and take the time to inform about UMS social enquiries. The enquiries ranges from our social gatherings (mentioned below) to the more hidden areas as student health, work safety, work environment and student events. Within UMS we work hard to make all students feel safe and healthy in their working environment. UMS also work to facilitate the students to feel safe to leave their studies for a possible future work.

Our student social gatherings that UMS facilitates:

Kårhuset Villa: Our fine organisation that governs our student union pub. Kårhuset Villan organises everything from dinners to play nights or other mischief. For booking and questions about prices, please contact

FestMästeriet: A group of happy students creating various festive events for example FörYran, brunches and spring- and midwinter prom. For questions or would like to help? please contact

SportMästeriet: SportMästeriet organises sporting events and has as main objective to get the blood pumping a little extra for our students. They organise tournaments in football, floorball and laserdome. If you have questions or would like to help, please contact

et al.: Our own union paper. Are you a whiz at crossword puzzles and the Swedish and English language? Why not write a short text and become immortalized in et al. If you want to tell a story or write about something exciting contact

And our newcomers:

SpelMästeriet: Within this fledgling association’s game in focus. Here students can play ordinary board to more modern electronic games like a Mario Kart tournament. The sky is the limit. Do you crave to become game master? Contact

ForskSek: Abbreviation of the longer Swedish word translated: Section for students interested in research. This group gather students to show their interest in science. The goal of the group is to create conditions for students of the medical faculty to conduct research alongside their studies. Would you like to do research, find projects to work with or assist others to do research? Then this is the thing for you! For questions or interest to be a part of the group, please contact

Welcome back to another semester!


Wheather you’re starting your second or last semester at the Faculty of Medicine at Umeå University this fall we at Umeå Medical Sciences Student Union warmly welcome you back after a long summer.

We would like to inform you of the possibility to represent your class in the student council for your program. This is an exciting possibility, which is a great opportunity to get to know both your program and students in other classes better. As a member of the student union you have the possibility to be elected by your classmates for this fall. Please talk to someone in your student council if you are interested in this opportunity!

To avoid the que at Kårhuset Villan during the first week of the semester, we suggest that you renew your membership in the student union online. Please follow this link.

New for this fall is the SpelMästeri, and if you are interested in playing board games we recommend you to speak to our head of social acitivities André.

Another new association is the Section for Students doing Research, ForskSek. Please contact ForskSek for more information, or keep your eyes open for more information on this webpage.
