Study abroad

As a student at the University of Borås, you have many possibilities to spend a semester abroad. Studies at one of our partner universities, field studies, and internships are some of the available alternatives. However, you must meet certain criteria in order to participate, often being a Swedish citizen or EU-citizen.  

Studies at a partner university

Instead of spending your entire study period in Borå,s you can choose to spend one or two semesters at one of our partner universities. If you make a study plan with your international coordinator and follow it, you will have full recognition for your studies abroad and can continue as usual when you return to Borås. 

Field studies and internships

You can collect data for your final thesis by doing a field study in another country. An internship at an organisation or a company abroad is another possibility to go abroad.

Other possibilities

If you do not find our partner universities interesting, you can arrange your own exchange period and spend a semester at the university of your choice. In that case, however, you will become freemover student and will need to take care of all the practical matters yourself.
