Studying abroad provides both memories for life and merits for a future professional life. In addition, you improve your language skills and get to know another country.

As a student of the Department of Linguistics, you can go as an exchange student to one of our own partner universities or apply for an exchange through Stockholm University's central agreement. You can also apply for a scholarship for a small field study, as a part of your thesis or degree project.


Exchange studies

As a student of the Department of Linguistics, you can go on exchange to one of our partner universities in Europe. Via the Erasmus+ Programme, you apply for a scholarship for a study period abroad. We also have several bilateral agreements with universities outside the EU.
