Outgoing exchange students

Are you thinking about studying abroad? If you are, it is an incredible experience and one you will always remember. The following information will help you understand the different possibilities available to you, including what types of programmes you can do, who holds which agreements – and how you apply for them - where you can study, and when it is best to go.

To see which agreements are available to students, search the University’s

world map.

The Department of Political Science has a variety of agreements with partner universities throughout Europe through Erasmus and Nordplus. These are the only agreements held specifically by this Department. We have participated in Erasmus since 1992 and currently hold over 25 Erasmus agreements. We are also part of a Nordplus political science network of 18 Nordic partners.

In addition, there are several university-wide bilateral agreements with universities outside Europe that are held by the International Centre, plus three faculty-wide agreements (link - Swedish only).

University information about the process is here. Important.
