If you are doing your doctoral studies at the medical faculty at Umeå University, you can being a member. Depending on your level of activity, you can choose partial or full membership. Partial membership is applicable if you are activity level is at 50% or less. It is also important that you specify that you are a PhD student when making your application to receive PhD-specific information.

As a PhD student, your membership is the same as that of the undergrad and grad students. This means that you can apply for funds to partially fund a study-social activity that you are organizing for other union members (for example a dinner with others from your group), you can also buy movie tickets for a discounted price and visit the our student pub, Kårhuset Villan along with all the other services and discounts that the union offers.
