Internationalisation of Programmes

Study abroad
Depending on the study programme, our students have different opportunities to study abroad. Information for programmes taught in Swedish. Information for programmes taught in English.

  • Exchange studies – Studies at one of Linnaeus University’s or the School of Business and Economics’ partner universities.
  • Double Degree – Some programmes have the possibility to do a double degree at some selected partner universities. When completed, the student will be awarded their programme degree as well as a general degree from the partner university.
  • Free mover – Students can, if they wish and on their own, find a university outside the partnerships available.

Internship abroad
Some programmes have an internship course. This internship is possible to do abroad. Depending on the location and duration of the internship, it can be possible to apply for scholarships through Erasmus.

Degree project abroad
Students can, if their supervisor approves, do their degree projects abroad. Swedish students can apply to do a Minor Field Study as well.

Internationalisation at home (IaH)
International students as well as international teachers are important for us so that all our students will encounter an international environment. Incoming international students of all categories share the classroom with national students. It is also possible to invite colleagues from other universities to come and teach. At External Relations, the Office for International Relations can assist with funds for inbound teaching mobility.


Programme surveys

As part of the Linnaeus quality assurance system triennial surveys are conducted:

  • Linnaeus barometer: sent out every three years to final-year programme students, last conducted in 2021
  • Alumni survey: sent out every three years, 3-5 years after graduation, last conducted in 2020
  • PhD student barometer: sent out every three years, last conducted in 2019

SBE programme and single-subject courses

Course syllabi and template

The course syllabus is the legal document that regulates the course content. Course syllabi can be found online. Search for a course syllabus using the course code or the course title. 

If a course needs to be revised, or a new one needs to be created, there is a set process. Local regulations for courses are set by the university. When revising or creating a new programme course the affected programme coordinator must be contacted to ensure that AoL is taken into consideration.

Course coordinator

All courses have an appointed course coordinator.

Course literature and textbooks 

The course literature should mirror the content and objectives described for the
course, as specified in Local regulations for courses.

Course rooms in MyMoodle

All courses have a room in MyMoodle where course coordinators post information for the students. The room in MyMoodle is created before the semester starts by the ICT Technician at the School of Business and Economics and then updated and managed by the course team. For more information on how to use MyMoodle, please refer to the Faculty digital handbook.

Faculty digital handbook

The handbook contains tools, links, tips and inspiration for your courses online.


Course evaluations

Routines and policy documents

When a course is completed, including all credits and modules, a digital survey will be sent out. Students can, if they wish, see previous surveys for the course by contacting ekonomihogskolan@lnu.se.

Survey & report

The university uses a system called Survey & Report to conduct course evaluations. 

Examinations and grading

Local rules for courses and examination



Before each semester examiners for the courses are decided.


Ladok is the administrative support system used at the university for student related activities. For teaching staff, the system is used to report the students' grades. 


The grading scale used fro the courses given at the School of Business and Economics is A-F or G/U (pass/fail). Instructions can be found in Grading and reporting rules at the School of Business and Economics.

Students with a passing grade on an examination cannot re-do the examination for a higer grade. Changes to a grade can only be made if there has been an error in the reporting (a total has been calculated wrong for example), Only the examiner for a course can change a certified course grade. Instructions can be found on the Ladok site. 

Written exams (not take-home or digital)

If a course has a written exam (not take-home or digital), it must be communicated to the responsible administrator at ekonomihogskolan@lnu.se in order to book and arrange the exam.

These written exams are anonymised, which means that the student will only use a code on the examination. The student will be provided with the code when signing up for the exam. 

Other types of exams are organised by the teacher/teachers involved in the course.

Doctoral students

Contact information, doctoral handbook, other documents and forms relevant for our PhD students can be found here.

Programmes offered in the international admissions round are posted on universityadmissions.se as well as on antagning.se 

Alternative selection (Tessan/Malin)

Our programmes on master level use an alternative selection as to better ensure that the most eligible and qualified students are admitted to each programme. This entails, for example, a written statement of purpose, and proof of English proficiency as part of the admission criteria.
