Exchange studies at SLU
Exchange students are students who come from one of SLU's partner universities. Before applying to SLU as an exchange student, you must be nominated by your home university. You can be an exchange student within the Erasmus programme, within the NOVA/BOVA network or by coming from a university that has a bilateral agreement with SLU. To make sure that you belong to one of these categories, contact your International Office/Study Abroad Office at your home university.
SLU has three main campuses: Alnarp, Umeå and Uppsala. In addition, SLU runs educational courses and programmes all over Sweden, here is a link to our locations.
If you would like to do an internship at SLU your first contact should be the department at SLU. Then your Erasmus Coordinator at your home university needs to approve your internship.
Erasmus Internships must be arranged in direct contact with the host department or research group at SLU. Please note that International Students Office cannot help students to find a relevant professor or researcher. Here you can find contact information for departments.
The International Students Office does not provide any service for students doing an internship. You can contact the department of your interest. It is then up to the department to determine if they can receive you or not. It might be good to know that you can´t take courses and do an internship at the same time due to the rules of the European Commission. Doing an internship doesn´t give you any credits and you are not registered as a student. It is up to the department to help you to find accommodation and to make sure that you are insured.
Veterinary students that wish to do a clinical practice have to contact their coordinator at the home university. If SLU has an exchange agreement with the home university the student can apply as an exchange student. More information can be found here.
