June 1 – seminar in english which is for foreign PhDs, post docs, faculty...

Are you new to Sweden or just still wondering how this confusing country works? The university is full of researchers, teachers, post docs and doctoral candidates of non-Swedish origin trying to figure out how to navigate all the different rules and regulations that govern the Swedish labour market, social security, residence, health care, unemployment and pensions. If you are one of them – this seminar is for you!

Time: June 1, at 12.00-14.00,
Place: William-Olssonsalen, Geovetenskapens hus
The seminar will address questions like:

  • How does the Swedish labour market work?
  • What are the three government agencies that "rule your world"?
  • Who needs a residence permit?
  • How does the social security system work?
  • Can I use the health care system?
  • Do I have the right to unemployment benefit?
  • Are only Swedish citizens entitled to Swedish pensions?

The seminar is held by Åsa Rybo Landelius.
