International possibilities for you as a student
You who study on a program
Within the framework of your program, there is often a term designated in the syllabus as extra suitable for exchange studies, if you need to take a specific subject area or level during the exchange it is also stated here. If you have an internship within your program you can also do it abroad, there is an Erasmus grant you can apply for if you plan to do your internship in Europe and the internship is at least 2 months. During your degree project you also have the possibility to carry out field work abroad in connection with your project and for this you can apply for the Minor Field Studies (MFS) grant if you have Swedish residency or citizenship.
You who study independent courses
If you take stand-alone courses, you can build a degree yourself with the content that you find interesting. You also have the possibility to do exchange studies during a semester or a year as part of your future degree. You can also do field work abroad if you take a degree project in a subject you can then apply for the Minor Field Studies (MFS) grant if you have Swedish residency or citizenship.
You who will be graduating soon
When you have completed your education you can go on exchange studies or do a traineeship abroad the following term or year. If you do exchange studies you have a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the chosen subject area or study something completely different to improve your skills. For traineeship abroad you need find a position yourself and if the internship is within Europe and the time for the internship is at least 2 months you can apply for the Erasmus+ grant.
More information on your international possibilities and applications can be found on our central pages managed by the International Office
Where can I go on exchange studies?
At the Faculty of Arts and the Humanities we have a large number of partners around the world. You can also go on one of Linnaeus University's university-wide collaborations, these partners are often outside Europe.
In our database below you can search for different countries or partners you are interested in. You can sort by country or by subject area. What placements will be available for the upcoming application rounds is based on reciprocation and if the host university will be available to accept students for the upcoming academic year.
Please see the listing of partner at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and our University wide collaborations at our International Office pages for Study Abroad: https://lnu.se/en/student/international-possibilities/study-abroad/
International collaborations within the faculty
These collaborations are primarily for students who study at our faculty or who are going to take one of our subject areas during their exchange studies. If you take any of our subjects during your exchange studies, you also do your study plan with us.
The subject group Arts and Humanities and Humanities are open to all students within our faculty as long as there are suitable courses available at the partner. Unless otherwise mentioned in the comment on the collaboration, our partners offer at least one semester's studies (30 credits) in the subject area, see the comment on each collaboration for more information.
International university-wide collaborations
These collaborations are for all students at Linnaeus University, there are suitable courses for students in arts and humanities at most of these partners.
Important to know
You always need to make sure that there are suitable courses available at our partners when applying for exchange studies. You do this most by finding out which courses are offered to incoming exchange students on the partner's website. Courses on offer change from each term so be sure to check that the subject area you want to take is available before applying. Please contact your program manager, the person responsible for your subject area or our international coordinator for support and assistance in the process.
Before applying it is important to know what subject areas are available and that there are courses in your choosen subject for a full term, deciding on courses is done later in the study plan when you are nominated to a partner.
