To make your stay in Luleå even more pleasant we in LURC try to arrange for all exchange students to have a Swedish buddy. A buddy is a student at Luleå University who has volunteered to help you. If you have any questions before you arrive you can always ask your buddy. Your buddy can help you get settled and show you how things work in Sweden and hopefully he/she will be your first Swedish friend! You will receive an email from your buddy approximately one month before your arrival.
Last day to apply for a buddy is 17th of July for the autumn semester and December 31st for the spring semester.
Disclaimer: We try to arrange buddies for everyone but since it depends on finding volunteers we cannot make any guarantees.
