Ask a student about studies abroad

Are you thinking about how to do, or what it is like to study abroad as a KTH student? Ask your questions, big or small, to KTH's exchange ambassadors. They have all studied abroad at various universities around the world.


Carry out your degree project abroad

As a KTH student you can carry out your degree project abroad - both on a undergraduate and graduate level. Students who do their thesis within Europe can apply for Erasmus scholarships just like for regular exchange studies.
