The visitors group receives information from the central Study Support and the Student services, and they will also receive a comprehensive visit and information program with the participation of Life Science, Chemistry, Biology, and Earth Science.

The Faculty of Medicine is involved in information on nursing, the Medicine programme, the Dentistry programme, and related education.

The group also gets a guided tour of the indoor sports facility Iksu sport.

The visit takes place at the initiative of the Swedish-language upper secondary schools in Österbotten in Finland, and links well to the visiting tour of Swedish-language upper secondary schools in Finland, which Umeå University conducts in January each year.
