  • Outbound Exchange Student in Biomedicine

    Congratulations, you have been nominated to complete an exchange or work on your thesis abroad! Below you will find important information about the exchange process.

  • General information

    You have been nominated for exchange studies. The next step is to put together a study plan and apply for an exchange at the partner university. You will find detailed information on this process below.

    Step 1: Preliminary Study Plan

    The most difficult and time-consuming part of the application process is to find the right courses and outline a preliminary study plan for your exchange at the partner university. Contact your Academic coordinator (oonagh.shannon@med.lu.se) for a discussion on course equivalancy and credit transfer.

    Step 2: Learning Agreement - formalising your study plan

    Once your study plan has been approved by the Academic coordinator, you can fill in your Learning Agreement. The Learning Agreement is a formalised study plan and is signed by your Academic and International coordinators as well as the representatives at the partner university. You will find the templates under the Learning Agreement section below.

    Step 3: Applying to the partner university

    You now have to apply for an exchange at the partner university. You will receive application information directly from the partner university after nomination or from your International coordinator. It is your responsibility to keep track of the application deadline and all the necessay paperwork. Make sure you find out how to apply for accommodation!

    Step 4: Letter of Acceptance

    Congratulations! You have been addmitted once you receive your Letter of Acceptance and a signed Learning Agreement from the partner university. Notify your international coordinator as soon as you receive notice. Now is the time to book your trip and arrange accommodation, if the latter was not part of the exchange application!

    Step 5: Grants and Scholarships

    Take a look at the following information on Grants and Scholerships (in Swedish). If you will be completing an exchange in Europe that is at least 13 weeks, you can apply for an Erasmus Study mobility grant.

    Step 6: Credit transfer

    Welcome home!

  • Preliminary Study Plan

    The most difficult and time-consuming part of the application process is to find the right courses and outline a preliminary study plan for your exchange at the partner university.

    You will have to initially ask yourself the following relevant questions:

    How many credits constitute full-time studies?
    Are there any specific admission requirements?
    Are there any restrictions on my choice of courses?
    Do these courses allow for a credit transfer towards my degree?

    Put together a preliminary list of courses in a word document and send this to your Academic coordinator (oonagh.shannon@med.lu.se). Book a time for a discussion on course equivalancy and credit transfer.

    If you are unsure if the course is on offer for exchange students, contact your International Coordinator.

    The course selection in your application is not final. Your course selection may change several times before starting your exchange period. The host university will ultimately determine what courses you will be admitted to.
