Exchange studies at KTH

KTH is a popular university for international students. Nearly 100 nationalities make up our vibrant student community. During 2014, KTH received 956 exchange students and a large number of international master's students.

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, with grades above average.

More about the application process

Application is now closed

The application will open again in mid-March for applications for studies or project work starting in September, 2016. The deadline will then be April 15.


Exchange students normally take courses relevant to their degree programme at the home university, but can also request to perform a degree project at KTH. A student who wants to carry out a degree 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 or professor, you should contact the International coordinator at KTH.
