Possible areas for cooperation include, but are not limited to:

University-wide agreements

The University of Gothenburg generally prefers to establish university-wide agreements when there is interest from a number of faculties. University-wide agreements are meant as umbrella agreements and it is acceptable to maintain or establish faculty or institutional agreements under the university agreement.

For university-wide agreements; please contact at the International Centre.

Faculty agreements

In the case of desired or established cooperation between one faculty to another a faculty agreement is preferred. This can also be the case if the cooperation encompasses more than one institution at a faculty.

Contact the international coordinators at the faculties.

Departmental agreements

Cooperation limited to a specific department is generally limited to departmental agreements. If the agreement can entail a number of departments then a faculty agreement may be a better fit.

Contact the international coordinators at the departments.

Erasmus inter-institutional agreements are made at the departmental or faculty level.

Other educational collaboration

For cooperation projects within programmes such as Nordic Master, Linnaeus-Palme or Erasmus+, please read more at the university Staff Portal (Choose English)
