Student Guide

Whether you're a first-year student or a veteran on campus, tips and tricks to get your everyday life into order always come in handy. In the following, we've put together a list of things to help you along the way.


Are you about to begin your studies at Jönköping University? 

Your first few months as a student may be a bit overwhelming at times. Everything is new and there are many things you have to keep track of, but don't worry. In time, all the pieces will fall into place. Below, you'll find some hints that will make your first semester on campus easier.

Before the start of the semester

When you have received confirmation of your place at Jönköping University, it's time to start a new chapter in your life. If you want to come prepared, it may be a good idea to do the following before the beginning of the semester:

Your first day on campus

As soon as you have confirmed your place at Jönköping University, you'll receive a notice to attend a roll call/introduction where you will receive information about your course/program. 

Once this is over, the Kick Off starts for you and your classmates. During the Kick Off, the Student Union and the Student associations organize activities so that you get to know Jönköping and the University. 

The first few weeks

Once the Kick Off is over, it's time to begin your studies in earnest. Have no fear! There are still a number of activities to be involved in outside of your studies. 

Your first few weeks are ideally spent exploring campus and all the things it offers. Why not join an association. Or perhaps you're more interested in relaxing in Rio, Sydney or the night club Akademien?

Also, don't forget to pay your Student Union membership fee, as it is compulsory to do so at Jönköping University. 


Once you have studied for a while, you've probably had time to familiarize yourself with the life of a student at JU. You know what the Student Union does and which student association you belong to. 

However, even a veteran student may find it useful to refresh their memory and take on new challenges. 

Hopefully, you've found the perfect study technique, which should leave you with more time for recreational activities. Why not use it to spice up your CV by joining an association, or working for your Student Association or the Student Union? Creating value for your fellow students is worthwhile, both in itself and because it is an awesome experience that may help you find your dream job later on. 

As a veteran on campus, you've probably taken a number of courses and exams. Perhaps you've run across some as yet undiscovered flaws in the system, or have questions now that you didn't then? Contact the the Student Union to gain assistance in finding answers to questions related to your education.
