Most agreements within Europe are made under the EU's program for student mobility in Higher Education under Erasmus. Some agreement with Scandinavian universities are made within the Nordplus programme. The agreements outside Europe are called bilateral agreements. They are made directly with different universities without being part of an international cooperation program. Some projects run within the Linnaeus Palme collaboration programme.
What places are offered?
The number of places that are available to apply for at each university varies from semester to semester. Exchange agreements will, over time, be "in balance", which means that we need to accept as many students as we send.
