How to apply
The application is completed by filling out the online application and sending in the compulsory supporting documents by mail or e-mail to the International Office at Mid Sweden University. Please follow the instructions below.
1. Choose courses
Choose courses and fill out the attached form Exchange students may apply to study part of a Bachelor or Master’s programme, or apply for single courses. A complete semester corresponds to the total amount of 30 credits, built up by either separate courses of 7.5–15 credits or one course of 30 credits. The university does not recommend students to choose a workload exceeding 30 credits per semester.
The single courses are divided into the undergraduate and the graduate level. On the undergraduate level, most courses have the labels A, B or C. A corresponds to basic level courses, B to continuing courses and C to advanced courses.
PLEASE NOTE: When applying for courses, it is important to choose courses that start at different times during the semester so that the student do not end up with four courses that run at the same time. Courses are usually taken one after the other (consecutive scheduling) or, if the courses are part time, two courses may be taken during the same time period. The courses are scheduled by week numbers. The autumn 2013 semester begins week 36 (the week of 2-8 September) and ends week 3 (the week of 13-19 January, 2014). The spring semester 2014 begins week 4 (the week of 20-26 January) and ends week 23 (the week of 2-8 June, 2014).
