Preparations before your exchange studies
Have you been allocated an exchange spot through KTH? Congratulations! Then it's time to start the preparations for your departure.
1. Study planning
The first thing you should do before your exchange studies is find the courses you want to study at the exchange university.
2. Apply to the exchange university
Everyone who has been allocated an exchange spot needs to apply to the exchange university. You make your application the semester before you leave, but the time depends on which university you are going to. Your international coordinator will contact you when it is time to apply.
Exchange studies do not have to entail any high additional costs. Review what to do with your regular study grants and whether to apply for a scholarship.
4. Insurance and healthcare
All KTH students on exchange studies, degree projects or internships abroad through KTH are covered by the Student UT insurance. Before departure, you should be aware of the EHIC (for exchanges within Europe), medicines, and vaccinations.
5. Practical preparations before departure
In addition to a possible visa application, there are some practical issues you need to keep track of or resolve before departure, such as accommodation, registration and necessary documents.
