Are you considering exhange studies at UID?

To come to UID as an exchange student your home university must have signed a formal exchange agreement with Umeå University. Contact the international coordinator at your home university to get help finding out if such an agreement exists, and if you can be nominated as an exchange student.

The coordinator at your home university has to nominate you for exchange studies at Umeå University by filling out an online form (the link to the form is sent by e-mail to your coordinator).

Nomination deadline: April 1 (exchange at UID fall 2022)

How to apply

Once your home university has submitted the nomination you will receive application instructions and a link to the web page where you apply for courses available. Note that you can apply for more than one course, as long as you rank the courses. Important is that you - in addition to applying at the web page - send your digital portfolio/home assignment and motivational letter to the international coordinator at UID.

Application deadline: April 15 (exchange at UID fall 2022)
