Who can apply for exchange studies?

Your home university must have an agreement with Mid Sweden University that includes student exchange. Contact the international office at your home university to find out if there is an agreement and if you can be nominated as an exchange student.


Mid Sweden University has an online nomination and application system for students from partner universities. The international coordinator at your home university nominates you by filling out an online nomination form. The link to the nomination form is sent via email from the International Relations Office to your coordinator.


When your coordinator has submitted the online nomination and we have confirmed the nomination, you will receive an email with a personal application link to the course application web page after the nomination deadline has passed. Please note that this application link is personal and cannot be forwarded or shared with other students.

Choose courses and upload required documents

Exchange students can apply for courses at Bachelor and Master level in the fields of Humanities, Social Sciences, Technology and Natural Sciences, Teacher Training and Health Sciences. All courses are taught in English. Please note that even though it is possible to apply for any of the courses in the list; applications to courses in subjects where there is no agreement with your department may not be accepted. 

Review the available courses and entry requirements ahead of time, so you know which courses to select when you apply. You select courses in the online application and upload the required documents (transcript of records from all previous university studies, study information sheet and copy of passport/ID) on your personal page on
