Your study environment as a chemistry student
Uppsala University's education cover all areas. There are also all kinds of people, from all over Sweden and many parts of the world, with different backgrounds and interests. In dorms and student nations everyone can meet cross-curricular which will open up for wider perspectives and a richer social life.
The chemistry students have two student associations, the IUPAK and the K-section, which are both part of Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students, UTN. Both the union and the associations offer a lot of social activities, for instance a Welcome Reception of new students, the Valborg festival with river rafting down the Fyris river, and the Science Students' ball at the castle. They also monitor your interests in issues related to education and the study environment as well as working life.
The Chemistry courses are given at two different campus areas: at the Biomedical Center (BMC) and at the Ångström Laborory (located at Polacksbacken). More information about the study environments at our campuses.
