For Students

HIC presentation at Rådhuset, August 2019

A warm welcome to all the International Master’s Students coming to continue their education at Lund University Campus Helsingborg!

Every August we have the pleasure of meeting you at the iconic town hall (Rådhuset), where along with the Mayor and other representatives of Helsingborg Municipality we present the HIC organisation and let you know about our activities.

All students and their partners are very welcome to HIC events and to our weekly drop-in sessions, where we can advise on opportunities for work, language courses and extra-curricular activities. We love collaborating with our international students and are always happy to discuss suggestions for joint activities!

We have a good relationship with the course co-ordinators and make sure that we pass on information about our events through them, as well as posting in HIC and student social media channels.

How can we help?

We understand that there’s a lot to think about when you arrive in a new country, but don’t worry, we are here to help you out. We run English-speaking events to support and inform everyone in the local international student community and hold a weekly drop-in session for internationals to ask questions about living in Helsingborg. You can also be involved as a HIC volunteer!

HIC is an independent organisation working in partnership with Helsingborg Municipality to provide a warm welcome for all international residents.
