IR, International Relations, has responsibility for the international students who come to SLU Umeå. IR's main responsibility is to pick up new exchange students at the airport or train station when they arrive in Umeå.
The section also brings keys to the exchange students, takes them to their new homes and gives them the necessary information about their stay in Sweden and at SLU.
The Board of International Relations is also on the Local Committee for IFSA.
IR also organizes activities during the academic year for the international students, at least once a month.
