Groups and Seminars

Do you have a tendency to procrastinate? Are you new in Sweden, are you going to study abroad? Do you feel stressed by expectations, deadlines, and a high workload? Are you critical of yourself or have irrational thoughts that influence your emotions? We give you tools to improve your situation and find a better balance in life.

All of our groups and seminars are free and developed based on the kind of help the the students most often request when they contact us. 

The groups and seminars are held at the Student Health Service, Övre Slottsgatan 7, unless otherwise stated. The courses below will be offered in English the spring 2020. 
A group can be cancelled if there are too few registered.
Courses in Swedish on our Swedish web page.

Do it now! Stop procrastinating

Do you have trouble organising your studies, a hard time getting started, or a tendency to put off tasks? If so, then this “Do it now!” group is for you. The purpose of the group is, with support of one another, to get going with your studies and create new and improved study habits. 

The group meets weekly at the Student Health Service, Mondays at 15:15-16:45. If you are interested in participating, please e-mail us and we will contact you with more information.

Note! The group has a continuous intake, which means that you may be placed in line and start when there is a vacancy.

When: Mondays, 15:15-16:45. Starts Monday 27 January.
Where: At the Student Health Service, Övre Slottsgatan 7, second floor.
Registration: E-mail; gordetnu@uadm.uu.se.

Brief seminars & group discussions: 5 topics

Life as a student is not always easy and it can be lonely even though you are surrounded by many other students. Come to our brief seminars, engage in group discussions and enjoy the benefits of sharing with peers. You will get the opportunity to meet others with similar concerns and get some answers and tips. You will also receive information, worksheets and book & app tips.

Although this is not a therapy group, we hope to create a respectful atmosphere where we can share and discuss with the expectation that what is said in the group, stays in the group. You are welcome to sign up for whichever seminar is of interest. At the same time, we encourage you to attend all of them to help create a supportive group. There is an 18 person limit per seminar, so there may be a queue.
