Exchange studies

At Umeå university you have the possibility to go or come for exchange studies and include them in your final degree. International Office is responsible for central exchange agreements and coordinates the university's participation in several exchange programmes and cooperations.

Umeå Institute of Design has international coordinators that can guide you through the process and help you with questions that arise.

If you are interested in doing an exchange period the procedure is as follows:

  • Make sure that an agreement exists between the university you want to study at and your home university

  • Get nominated by your home university

  • Send in an application to the university where you want to have exchange studies

  • Wait for a notification if you are accepted or not

Find our exchange agreements and read more about the application process in the column to the right.
