Applications to certain non-European universities (university-wide agreements) may be subject to special requirements regarding documentation etc.
You must submit a personal letter written in English with the application. If you are planning to study in a non-English speaking country, the letter should preferably be written in the language spoken in that country, for example in Italian for an Italian university. Yet, do not forget to write an English version as well.
In the letter, explain why you want to participate in the exchange programme and why we should choose you. Also, describe your language skills and explain what makes you a good ambassador for your Faculty and the University of Gothenburg.
The CV shall contain relevant information about your education, yet other relevant achievements and experiences, such as summer research, exhibitions, projects and lab experience, should be included as well.
To show evidence of credits earned from the University of Gothenburg and possibly other higher education institutions, you must submit a detailed LADOK report. Documentation of studies at the University of Gothenburg can be accessed here. In order to access documentation for other universities/university colleges, you must contact them directly.
Students at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts must submit a portfolio prepared according to special instructions. See the Faculty’s website for more information.
Your application will not be processed until your ENTIRE signed application, including all the supporting documents, has been submitted to your Faculty’s coordinator. If possible, we recommend that you as part of the application process make certain that the selected host university offers courses that are relevant to you. See special Faculty information to learn more.
If you want to change any information in the application, complete a new application form. We can see when an application was completed, and will only consider the most recent version from an applicant.
