International collaborations

Linnaeus University strives to be one of the leaders nationally when it comes to internationalisation and it offers teachers, researchers and students rich opportunities to gain international experience.

All co-workers and students should have the opportunity to establish lasting international contacts with the aim of maintaining diversity and contributing to sustainable development. Our knowledge environment stimulates openness and promotes exchanges of knowledge between different countries, cultures, ages and scientific disciplines.

Our goal is that all our educational programmes will include the opportunity to study abroad and that more of our courses will be taught in English. Many courses are open to both foreign and Swedish students. Teaching will be carried out by both Swedish and foreign lecturers and researchers. This means that all our students have an increased international awareness and are well equipped for the future job market.

Linnaeus University strives to be an international university, a springboard to worldwide knowledge for both students and employees. All students are to be offered the opportunity to get international experience through, for instance, studies abroad or internship abroad.

The Office of External Relations coordinates, administrates, and quality-assures international university wide exchange agreements and programmes such as Erasmus+. The mission involves competitive intelligence and the spreading of information on opportunities and conditions for international mobility, various types of collaborations, and funding sources.

The International Office within the Office of Student Affairs is responsible for the mobility of outgoing and incoming exchange students, coming from or going to the university's partner universities. The slightly more than 1,000 incoming exchange students that study at Linnaeus University each year also receive support and guidance during their studies.

The Committee for Internationalisation

Linnaeus University has agreements/cooperation with universities around the world. The agreements can include a wide range of activities, such as teacher exchange, student exchange, and research cooperation. Many of the agreements only include cooperation within specific subject areas.
