No tuition fees and no prolonged study period
Studying abroad through our exchange agreements means that you do not have to pay regular student tuition at the host institution. Moreover, for most of the exchange opportunities within Europe, you will also receive a grant that covers the extra cost of living abroad.
Since you can apply the credits you earn abroad towards your degree at the University of Gothenburg, going on an exchange will not delay your expected graduation date.
Internships and field studies
An internship at an organization or a company abroad gives you the opportunity to test your skills in a real-life situation. You will be one step closer to working life and gain access to an international network that you can greatly benefit from in your future career.
There are many opportunities. You can receive a placement at an EU institution, conduct field studies in a developing country (Minor Field Studies), or receive an Erasmus placement at a company or an organization. It is even possible to carry out the Erasmus placement after you have completed your studies.
Several of the internship opportunities and the field studies include scholarships or internship salaries.
