During 2012, KTH received 1372 exchange students and a large number of international master's students. The majority of exchange students come from Europe, with Germany and France as the most frequent countries of origin, but we also welcome students from Asia, North and Latin America, Australia and Africa every year.
Who can become an exchange student at KTH?
In order to be accepted at KTH as an exchange student, you have to be enrolled at a partner university, i.e. one with which KTH has an exchange agreement. You must also have completed at least two years of the educational programme at your home university, with grades above average. The application page contains more information about the application procedure.
Types of exchange at KTH
Exchange students normally take courses in English that are relevant to their original degree programme, but can also request to perform a final degree project/Master's thesis at KTH.
Thesis work and degree projects
A student who wants to carry out a project must contact a relevant research group or professor directly and make the arrangements with them.
Students cannot be guaranteed to be accepted for a project. If you are accepted by the research group/professor, you should contact your International coordinator at KTH.
Other than through special programmes, such as the NUS Overseas Campus, students cannot be assisted in finding internship placements by KTH.
There are very limited possibilities to accept free movers (students who do not apply within an exchange agreement), partly due to a difficult accommodation situation. Students with a BSc degree or equivalent may apply for our Master's programmes taught in English.
