Groups and seminars

Do you feel stressed by expectations, deadlines, and a high workload? Do you have a tendency to procrastinate? Are you new in Sweden and struggling with the climate and darkness? Are you feeling lonely? We provide tools to improve your situation and find a better balance in life, as well as opportunities to meet new people.

As a student at Uppsala University, SLU (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) in Uppsala, and Johannelund School of Theology, you have access to our groups and seminars.

All of our groups and seminars are free of charge and developed based on the kind of help students most often request when they contact us. They are held in English and open to both Swedish and international students. If you speak Swedish, you can look through our range we offer in Swedish.
