As a student at SLU, there are many different exchange programmes you can apply for if you would like to study abroad.


SLU has many partner universities around Scandinavia, gathered in a network called NOVA, the Nordic Forestry, Veterinary and Agricultural University Network.

The NOVA network offers you the chance to deeper studies in a specific area which might not be given at SLU, but at our Nordic partners. You can apply for everything between a few weeks intensive course to a whole year abroad.

If you go abroad as an exchange student, you can apply for the Nordplus scholarship which give you both a travel grant and a scholarship based on how many months you are away.
