The form also includes application for accommodation and Swedish language courses at KTH.
Review the Handbook for Exchange students for course information (see "For admitted students" in the left hand menu)

See to that you save, print and sign the application form; it also has to be approved by your home university coordinator

Web-based application form
The on-line application form for studies at KTH for the autumn 2013 and spring 2014 is now closed. It will open again in early September, 2013 for studies commencing in January, 2014. If you need more information about the application, please contact your home university's international office.
Letter of acceptance
If you are accepted as an exchange student to KTH, you will receive a "Letter of acceptance" a few weeks after deadline. This is the formal decision about studies at KTH and is, for non European citizens/students, used for getting a permit for studies in Sweden. It is important that you bring it when arriving in Sweden, and it is also important to apply for the visa/permit for studies as soon as possible, as the process may take up to three months!
