Application and admission

An exchange student is a student who is presently registered at a university that has an exchange agreement with the University of Borås.

If you are interested in our educational programmes and are not an exchange student, you can apply as a freemover. If you have questions about the possibility of obtaining a degree, please contact the degree certification officers.

How to apply

The University of Borås uses online application system TransIT for incoming exchange students. Please note that you have to be nominated by your home university before applying.

English Proficiency

Since the language of instruction and course literature for exchange students is English, the student must have sufficient English language skills. The faculties require the applying students to submit documents proving proficiency in English equivalent to B2 level (i.e. TOEFL test or language of instruction certificate from your university). The B2 level is the basic language, some study programmes have special requirements. Please contact the responsible international coordinator.
