The International Welcome Point (IWP) is an entrance to those students, professors, researchers and managers interested in studying or staying at our university. The IWP gives orientation and assistance, before and during the stay at the UMU, in issues such as accommodation, legalization, Spanish courses or telematic access. Moreover, we have the Buddy Programme which eases the integration of international students in the university life and in the Spanish community.
