Study abroad

Studying abroad is a unique opportunity and experience, a chance for you to round out your résumé while discovering the world, learning about new cultures, and making friends for life. As a student at KTH, you can spend part of your study time abroad without additional costs or extended study time.

Do your degree project through KTH Field Studies

Through KTH Field Studies (FS), you can get a travel grant for writing your degree project in a low- and middle-income country, for example, in Latin America, Africa, or Asia. The application is now open until 16 October.

Changed application for exchange studies

From the autumn semester 2023, applications for exchange studies are made twice a year, in November and February. When you should apply depends on whether you study your entire education at KTH or only study a master's programme at KTH.
