Checklist

to use before you go on exchange

  • CSN - financial aid for students.

    - Provided you are eligible, please apply early, see CSN for more info
  • Insurance

    - Provided that you have contacted the International Office with your exact semester dates, and you are registered in LADOK for exchange studies, you will be insured by Kammarkollegiet for your period of study. 

    - Email a copy of your official Letter of Acceptance (or similar document you receive from the host university) to Ville Engström to receive the insurance certificate and the Medical Insurance Card (MIC).

    - If you are going to study within the EU/EEA, please note that you will only receive an insurance certificate from us.  Instead of a MIC from Kammarkollegiet, you need to order a European Health Insurance Card from Försäkringskassan

    Information on the insurance and how to obtain it

  • VISA / Residence Permits

    - If you are an international student going to study outside the EU: apply early!  Please bear in mind that the visa requirements and processes may take quite some time to go through. This is something you must consider BEFORE you apply for an exchange semester outside of EU. It is your own resposibility to look into what visa regulations that applies to you and to ensure you go through the application process.

    - If you are a Swedish citizen and are going within EU: if you are staying longer than 3 months, you need to apply for a residence permit once you have arrived to the relevant country
