To pay for your printouts you need a PayPal account or a credit card (ex. Visa/Mastercard, Maestro are not accepted). More info on printing here.

At JU, it is compulsory for all students to become members of Jönköping Student Union. The Student Union is a great resource for students – they influence the quality of education, arrange activities and trips, carry out various projects, and much more. The student union fee is included in the tuition for tuition-fee paying students, however, all other students are required to pay the membership fee separately. The Student Union is located in the Students’ House. Learn more here: http://www.jonkopingsstudentkar.se/english/about-us.html

Generally, we sign documents (Learning Agreement, Certificate of Arrival etc.) during the introduction week in August. Please fill out the documents before you submit them to us for signature.


You can submit the documents in one of the following ways:


  • During the introduction week in August, you can hand in the documents in paper form to the Service Center at the Jönköping University campus during their opening hours. There will be boxes at the Service Center divided per JU school where you can hand in the documents. You will then be able to collect the signed documents during a drop-in session scheduled for Wednesday 1 September 12.00-14.00 (outside Service Center).
  • You can upload the documents for signature via the case management system (http://educationsupport.ju.se ) and choose case type: incoming exchange. If you do not have a digital copy of the documents, it is possible to scan them on the printers located on campus and upload them to the case management system.


Please note that JU cannot currently sign Online learning agreements due to technical reasons, therefore please submit your documents via one of the two ways described above.

 

If for some reason you need our signature before the introduction week in August, we will assist you via the case management system (http://educationsupport.ju.seexternal link, opens in new window), please choose case type: incoming exchange.
