International opportunities

Students at Uppsala University have the opportunity to go abroad as part of their studies. Read about four different study abroad activities that are administered by the Unit for International Mobility: exchange studies, traineeships, field studies and summer courses abroad.

On 23 May, 2022, it was announced that Minor Field Studies (MFS) will be discontinued. A final call for application for a limited number of grants will be held between 1 August and 30 September 2022. The projects that have been approved within the framework of MFS need to be completed before 10 January 2023. More information about the application, the discontinuation or information that concerns you as a student who is still to complete an MFS can be found under field studies.


The Unit for International Mobility is responsible for the study abroad activities on these pages.

Zoom drop-in hours

During the semesters you can meet with the Unit for International Mobility for questions about studies abroad. When you enter the Zoom meeting you will be placed in a waiting room until it is your turn. You will then be asked to briefly describe your question before you are transferred to an individual conversation with an available International Officer.

Drop-in is offered on Tuesdays at 11:00–12:00 and Thursdays at 13:00–14:00 during the semesters with the exception of public holidays. Please note that the drop-in session on Thursday 6 October is cancelled!

The last drop-in for the spring semester of 2022 is Thursday 2 June. After the summer break, we will reopen for drop-in on Thursday 1 September 2022.
