Study abroad

Students at the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University have the possibility to study one or two semesters abroad.

The Department of Mathematics has agreements concerning exchange studies within the Erasmus+ programme with Departments of Mathematics at several European universities. In addition, there are agreements at faculty level (the Faculty of Science) and central level.


Where can I go?

As a student at the Department of Mathematics you can apply for exchange studies within the following programmes/agreements.

Within the Erasmus+ programme, the Department of Mathematics has agreements with different universities across Europe. A list of the departments with which we currently have agreements is available at Erasmus partner universities.

Tip: Are you interested in exchange studies at a European university which is not on the list? If you send an e-mail to we can look into the possibility of writing an agreement with the Department of Mathematics at that university. Note that in this case you have to contact us well ahead of the semester/academic year during which you want to go abroad.

More information about Erasmus+

The Faculty of Science has exchange agreements with:

  • University of Amsterdam
  • University of Ghent
  • Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
  • University of Western Australia, Perth
  • University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USA

The faculty level agreements are administered by the Section for Chemistry. More information is available at their web site.


How do I apply?

Depending on the programme/agreement, different application procedures are used.

You apply to the Department of Mathematics.

  1. Pick 1-5 universities from the list of partner universities: Erasmus partner universities. Make sure that the universities you pick give appropriate courses in a language you know and that the courses are given while you are there. If you cannot find information about which courses are given at a certain university, contact them and ask.
  2. Write a personal letter in which you describe why you want to go on an exchange and motivate your choice of universities.
  3. Fill out the application form below and send it to
    Application form for outgoing Erasmus+ students 2021/22 (pdf) (271 Kb)


To be eligible for exchange studies within our agreements within the Erasmus+ programme you should have studied Mathematics, Mathematical Statistics and/or Computer Science for at least one year. At the time of application, you should be a student at the Department of Mathematics.


To each partner university, we can send 1-3 students per semester, depending on what is specified in the agreement with that particular university.

First, a selection based on the first-hand choices of the applicants is made; among those not selected in this selection round, another selection round based on their second-hand choices are made; and so on.

If there is competition for the spots, the same selection criteria as those used for central level agreements will be applied.

The faculty level agreements are administered by the Section for Chemistry. You can find more information on their web site (in Swedish).
