Internationals

Welcome to Föreningen Ekonomerna and Stockholm!

This webpage aims to help all students who come to Stockholm from abroad with life in Stockholm and Föreningen Ekonomerna.

F.E.St. for international students

Föreningen Ekonomerna includes international students in all parts of the Association. Unless marketed otherwise, all our events are held in English. Events that are held in Swedish usually include other parties that want to host the event in Swedish.

Moving to a new country can be a scary experience, but F.E.St. tries to help you in finding new friends and connections here as smoothly as possible.
For the first few weeks of your studies, Fadderiet (our welcoming activities) will take care of you, by organizing plenty of activities that let you connect with your fellow students.
Once Fadderiet ends, your student life only begins. Keep an eye on Orbi or our Social Media channels to join our other events, or you can become an active member in our Committees and projects.
