It’s time for the Committee of External Relations annual trip abroad! This semester we´re travelling to Jordan, an interesting middle east state with neighboring countries such as Syria, Israel and Saudi Arabia but with a satisfying security situation (according to the Swedish State Department). We truly believe that Jordan and its capital, Amman, will give us a lot of possibilities to experience great study visits! The ones going to Jordan will create a travelling group and decide exactly which and what kind of study visits we will do. But examples of visits are NGO:s, other political activists, students from Jordan and journalists. The sky is the limit! Since Petra, on of the seven new wonders, is located in Jordan, we´re also looking forward to a day trip to this historical place!

The price level in Jordan is relatively low compared to Sweden. The cost for flight tickets and housing will be approximately 4 000 SEK and the trip to Petra costs about 1 000 SEK. If you rather want to stay in Amman than go to Petra, it´s of course okay!

We are aiming to departure after 23th of Mars and stay for 4-5 days, but the travel group will decide the exact departure together!

Kind regards

The UPS-day

The inspark may soon be over, but after that there is still a lot to discover within UPS.

On Sunday the 3rd of September, between 1 and 3 pm, UPS will arrange a get active-mingle at Västgöta nation. All the committees of the association will be present to inform about their work and activities, and how you can get active.

We will also elect a new recentior representative – a person studying the first year on the bachelors programme with the task to represent the first year students in the board. Does this sound interesting to you? In that case you are more than welcome to send us a short e-mail telling us why you want and should be recentior representative, to ordforande@uppsalapolitices.se. You also have the opportunity to candidate on site.

So come mingle and enjoy some free fika with all of us on Sunday!
