Exchange studies

As a student at Uppsala University you may study courses during one or two semesters at one of our partner universities. Since we have an exchange agreement there are no tuition fees to be paid to the hosting university.

You may also apply for transfer of credits towards your degree from Uppsala University. For studies within the EU and certain selected universities outside of EU you will also be awarded a grant. Students eligible for funding through the Swedish Board of Student Finance may also use these means for studies abroad.
