At the time of application, you must be registered for
full-time studies at the School of Economics and Management, and have completed
at least 30 credits at the faculty.
What if I have been on an exchange before?
You can apply for a summer course even if you have
previously been nominated for, or already participated in, the School of
Economics and Management’s exchange programme. Similarly, participation in
summer courses will not prevent you from applying for exchange studies in future
All eligible applicants who submit a complete
application to the School of Economics and Management’s exchange programme are
ranked, regardless of the summer course. The ranking of applicants and allocation
of places are performed by the International Office at the School of Economics
The selection is based on the grades reported from previously completed semesters. You
are awarded an average grade value based on the share of credits with a certain
grade. In a
competitive situation, the Statement of Purpose is decisive.
If you have not completed courses/components from previous semesters, this will affect your place in the ranking. However, missing exams during the current semester will not affect your place.

If you intend to apply for both summer courses and regular exchange within the same application round, you must submit two different applications with two different email addresses.
The fact that the studies are conducted within the
framework of the exchange agreement means that students who are nominated by
the School of Economics and Management are not required to pay a tuition fee.
However, the cost of travel, accommodation, social activities, excursions,
administration, etc. are not included. These costs vary depending on which
university you attend. Read more about this under each programme.
If you are eligible for Swedish student finance, and plan
on studying within the EU/EEA or Switzerland for at least three weeks, at 50 per
cent or more, you can apply for student finance. To be eligible for student
finance for studies outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland, the study period must
be at least 13 consecutive weeks long. If you study abroad before or after the
summer course, and the summer course is included in the same study programme,
CSN will calculate the total study period. For more information, visit the CSN website.
All students taking a summer course through the School
of Economics and Management are covered by the group insurance provided by the
Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency (Kammarkollegiet).
It is your responsibility to make sure you have the appropriate visa or residence permit for your stay in the host country.
Transfer of Credits
