Erasmus

Current application round

Deadline for spring 2017 is 28 September 2016.

Eligibility requirements

In order to apply for Erasmus+ programme via the Department of Mathematics, you must be registered at our department, and have studied mathematics for at least one year. It is usually better to go abroad later in your studies and not directly after the first year, because then it is easier to find courses that can be transferred (tillgodoräknas).

Application

Before you can apply, you must do some background research. Among other things, you have to select and rank the universities you want to apply for, and find out which courses they offer.

In a nutshell, the application process looks like this:

  1. Select 3-5 universities from the page Erasmus partner universities.
  2. Make a preliminary course selection for your exchange period. If you cannot find course lists on the internet, contact the universities directly and ask. Notice that sometimes it is not possible to get a complete list of courses this early, but (to avoid unpleasant surprises) it is very important that you at least contact the universities to make sure that they have courses on appropriate level and in the correct language.
  3. Write a short cover letter where you motivate the choice of countries and universities in step 1.
  4. Fill in the application form below and send to erasmus@math.su.se.

Selection criteria

We can send 1-3 students to each partner university, depending on what is specified in the exchange agreement with the university in question.

So far we haven't had any competition on the spots within Erasmus. However, in the unlikely event that too many students apply for the same university, selection will be made according to the same criteria as for the central agreements, read more here. Students who won't be selected for their first-choice university, will be considered for their second-choice university instead. If they won't be selected there either, they will be considered for the third-choice university etc.

(No selection for late applications; available places will go to whoever applies first.)
