International Possibilities within Arts and Humanities

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is actively working to ensure international perspectives in the education we provide. In this endeavour, among the inclusion of other things, we strive to provide both students and staff with every possibility to do parts of their studies or employment abroad.

We also work with internationalisation at home and as a student at our faculty you have great opportunities to meet with teachers, researchers and students from other cultures and environments.

International Possibilities

You have a great deal to gain by doing a part of your studies abroad. You have an opportunity to develop not only academically but also to gain international experience, deepen your language abilities and grow in the meeting with cultures different from your own.

General information about our international possibilites can be found under the page Study Abroad where you will find all the information you need for applying for a term abroad.

  • Study abroad through an exchange: During your studies you can usually do either one or two terms of exchange studies, as a part of your ongoing studies. This possibility is open both for programme students and for students who are combining their own degree.
  • Internship abroad: If you have an internship integrated in your educational plan, why not do it abroad? If you plan to do an internship within Europe you can also apply for the Erasmus+ Traineeship scholarship.
  • Degree Project: As long as you get approval from your supervisor you can do part of your degree project abroad independently. Through the project Minor Field Studies (MFS) you can also apply for a scholorship to collect material in a developing country for your degree project.

Possible placements for Study Abroad
At Linnaeus University there are two kinds of collaborations. university wide and subject specific. The university wide agreements are open for all students at Linnaeus University whilst the subject specific ones are for you as a student in that subject. The university wide agreements are most often located outside of Europe and the subject specific ones within Europe.

Partner Institutions

You will find our international partners within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities below. In adjunction we have also gathered some of the university wide collaborations where students within our subjects usually find suitable courses.

With reservations for unknown changes. If nothing else is mentioned, our partners offers the eqivilant of one term (30 credits) in English within the described subject area. However you will still need to confirm that the courses are suitable for you and your studies. We have also annoted the level of our collaborations, First cycle (Bachelor), Second cycle (Master) and Post graduate (Doctoral). If you need support in finding the right partner for your studies, your are welcome to contact your teachers in that subject or your programme coordinator for support.

Several of our collaborations are within the subject groups Arts and Humanities as well as Humanities. These are open for all students at our faculty as long as there are suitable courses available at the partner institution. So remember to look through these alternatives as well when you are looking for a study abroad placement.

Study Plan

When you have applied for exchange studies and been nominated to one of our partners, you write a study plan (learning agreement). The study plan specifies what courses you are planning to take during your exchange and how you can transfer those credits back to your studies at Linnaeus University and the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

The study plan must be completed and submitted before you go leave for your exchange studies. Some of our partners may require the finished study plan earlier, to be sent in with your application documents to them.

As a student at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, you will get help and support when writing your study plan. After you have been nominated, you will receive an email from us with instructions.

Do you have questions about writing a study plan or want to know more? You can always contact us at
