Incoming exchange students
The basic requirement for entering Stockholm University as an exchange student is that you have been accepted as an exchange student through a formal exchange programme or similar agreement between your university and Stockholm University.
In the first instance, you as prospective exchange student should approach the relevant international exchange co-ordinator in your home institution.

Meet our exchange students
What I really liked about Stockholm University was the welcome activities and the buddy program.
Read the travel report by the exchange student Deborah Suter from Switzerland. It is about her experience studying two courses whitin the subject field Early Childhood Education at the Department of Child and Youth Studies, Stockholm University.
Stockholm University is very supportive to students. They listen to students’ voices.
Read the interview with Nagomi Sugiyama from Japan who was studying courses in Early Childhood Education during the fall semester 2020 at the Department of Child and Youth Studies.
If you have any questions about our exchange agreements at the Department of Child and Youth Studies or other questions related to study in Sweden and Stockholm University, you are welcome to contact our International coordinator.
