About this group

The objective of UF Uppsala is to further international debate by, for example, stimulating debate and creating opportunities for learning. Might not traveling be the best way of achieving these tasks? As a UF traveler, you get the chance to meet international organizations, local authorities, institutions, NGOs, and businesses, providing you a deeper understanding of the region’s current affairs.

In the travel group, we decide destinations together. These are commonly topical in the foreign affairs arena or interesting due to being overlooked in the media. There are usually two trips in the academic year that vary in length. Keep an eye on our Facebook group and here on the main website for updates, meeting info, and the ability to influence the choice of future trips.

Everyone who is a member of UF Uppsala can join on a trip – we only require a genuine interest!

Do you have any thoughts or questions don’t hesitate to contact us!
