How to apply as an exchange student

How to select courses as an exchange student

Remember to:

  • ensure the courses you are interested in would be approved by your home university for a credit transfer. Our courses are not open for auditing;
  • list some alternative courses in your course selection form, in case of schedule clashes or in case some courses are full;
  • include your transcripts if you are interested in a course that requires previous studies, such as English 2, English 3 or advanced level courses.

See link below for useful information from Stockholm University on housing, insurance, etc., in preparation for your arrival in Stockholm.


Stockholm University organises a series of welcome activities at the beginning of each semester. The activities are designed to assist you as a new student and introduce you to university life in Stockholm and Sweden.
