Through Erasmus+, you have the opportunity to study part of your degree in one of the partner universities of Stockholm University. Through the student exchange, you will not have to pay any additional student fees and you will be granted a scholarship.
The agreements made through Erasmus+ with other higher education institutions in Europe are departmental. Therefore, if you have questions about the opportunities available to you and how to apply, please contact the international coordinator at your department.
In order to participate in Erasmus+, you must:
- Have completed at least a year of full-time studies at higher education level (60 credits) before departure.
- Be a registered student at Stockholm University, where you intend to graduate. (Students on study leave may not apply)
- Be offered an exchange that means you will be there at least 90 days, but no more than 360 days per education cycle.
- Not have been on a study or internship exchange through Erasmus+ as a part of the same education cycle previously, making the total over 360 days.
- Establish a Learning Agreement before departure.
- Sign a Grant Agreement before departure.
- Complete a language test before and after the exchange.
- Complete an online survey, a Participant Report, after the exchange.
- Submit a Certificate of Attendance to Stockholm University after the exchange.
- Not accept any other scholarships from the EU or the Swedish Council for Higher Education.
Please note that these are requirements stipulated by Erasmus+. Your department may have further requirements; therefore, contact your international coordinator to learn more.

Important information about exchange in the UK
The United Kingdom has voted to leave the EU. This may affect the opportunities for British citizens to study in Sweden and for Swedes to study in the UK. Exchange studies in the UK through Erasmus+ are therefore also affected.
It is currently unclear when the UK will leave the EU and if they will reach an agreement or if it will be a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.
The European Parliament and the European Council have stipulated a regulation allowing students who are in the UK via Erasmus+ to complete their exchanges as planned. The agreement only applies to students who participate in an exchange at the date of withdrawal.
Brexit with an agreement
If there is an agreement between the UK and EU, the UK will participate in Erasmus+ through 2020. This means that exchanges can be carried out as planned until then. However, it is yet unclear if this will uphold after 2020.
Interested in UK exchange studies?
Whether the UK participates in the Erasmus program or not, there may still be an opportunity to do your exchange there. Contact your department to learn more about opportunities available to you.
You are obligated to complete a language test both before and after your exchange. Some languages are also available as online courses.
Students with a disability
If you have a disability which entails extra expenses during your exchange, you may apply to have these expenses covered up to 100 percent. Expenses may include transportation, teaching aids, special accommodation, assistants, or medical assistance in the country of your host university.
Students with children
If you have children that will accompany you to the country of your exchange, you may apply for an additional 200 euro per month.
In addition to exchange studies, students also have the opportunity to participate in an internship, write an essay, or collect data abroad through the Erasmus+ Traineeship programme. This includes the same countries included in Erasmus+ student exchange programme.
