Exchange studies at KTH
KTH is a popular university for international students with a vibrant student community made up by nearly 100 nationalities. Each year the university welcomes 1,000 exchange students and an even larger number of international degree seeking students. Exchange studies normally entails studying a selection of courses, not leading to a KTH degree. Students from double degree partner universities however, do have the possibility to complete a double degree exchange in which they follow a KTH degree programme and receive one degree from each university.
Who can become an exchange student?
In order to become an exchange student at KTH, you have to be enrolled at a partner university with which KTH has an exchange agreement. In order to qualify you must have completed at least two years of the educational programme at your home university, preferrably more, with grades above average.
As an exchange student in all subject areas except from architecture, you make an individual course selection and create your own study plan. KTH offers more than 1000 Master's level courses in English. Exchange students within architecture have a set study plan.
Who can become a double degree student?
As a double degree student you are awarded a degree from KTH, as well as your home university after completed studies. In order to become a double degree student at KTH, you must be enrolled at a partner university with which KTH has a double degree agreement. Please contact the International office at your home institution to find out whether such an agreement exists. In order to qualify you must have completed at least three years of the educational programme at your home university, with grades above average. Application is done according to the same process as exchange studies.
KTH may offer internship placements for students from other universities. These students must first find a department willing to host them. The intern will not receive academic credits for the internship, and are not allowed to register for courses.
