Application and admission
If your university has an exchange agreement with Mid Sweden University, you are welcome to apply as an exchange student. The admission of exchange students is granted to qualified students nominated by their home institution. The student must fulfil the general requirements for admission for entry and the prerequisites for the chosen courses. The length of the exchange period is determined by the agreement between Mid Sweden University and the student's home university, but the maximum is always two semesters.

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. Courses offered to Exchange students

Student Accommodation
Mid Sweden University does not provide student accommodation, but the university cooperates closely with several student housing companies in each campus city. The types of housing varies, but all types of student accommodation in Sweden are generally of a high standard. Exchange students may apply for accommodation before receiving the Confirmation of Enrolment, but the accommodation application will not be processed by the housing company until after the students enrolment is confirmed. Please note that students need to be admitted to at least 15 credits per semester to qualify for student accomodation. Read more about student accommodation.
