How to apply for exchange studies and the application

Erasmus+ is an exchange programme in Europe for studies and internships abroad for three months up to a year.

How does it work?

1. Application

If you want to study abroad, you apply through our web form. The application deadline for the academic year of 2020/2021 is now closed. Applications after this date may not be considered.

2. Selection

You must be enrolled in a programme and have completed at least a year of the programme. The minimum requirement is that you on average have gained 45 HE credits per academic year (75%) within your programme. You should also have good proficiencies in the language of instruction.

The applicants who fulfil the entry requirements should be assigned an exchange place, as long as there is no competition. In case of competition, the following applies:

1. Students who have not previously been assigned an exchange place through University of Gävle should be prioritized.

2. The number of completed HE credits in the programme at the time of application should be decisive.

3. The average grade on courses within the programme that the student has completed at the time of application.

3. Scholarships, visa and insurance

For all exchange programmes, there are scholarships assigned to students travelling abroad within the programme for the first time. If you go to countries that require a visa, you have to pay the visa costs yourself. The cost varies from country to country.

The University of Gävle has a comprehensive insurance from Kammarkollegiet for all students travelling abroad within an exchange agreement.
