    When I was searching for the best place to study the life sciences course I landed on the Umea University website. I liked their course curriculum and their methods of studies as well. From one of the graduate student's reviews, I got to know that the university posses well-equipped labs and tools. Also, a student can reach to the office whenever they need help. The unconditional acceptance letter that was of SEK 900 was paid by me to apply for the university.

    Fees :

    My dad paid my tuition fee of SEK 71,400. It was the first instalment of the course.
