Exchange Student

If you are an exchange student then you attend Södertörn University through a formal agreement of exchange studies, either via the Erasmus program or through a bilateral agreement. You have to be be nominated by your home university to attend exchange studies at Södertörn University.

This is also the difference between an exchange student and a freemover. A freemover is an international student coming to Sweden on the same terms as the Swedish students. For more information about freemovers press the link on the left.

As an exchange student at Södertörn University the university offers you their international officers that help you with all the formal and practical questions you might have before and after your arrival in Stockholm. More information about exchange studies can be found on: www.sh.se/exchange

At Södertörn University there is a group, through the Student Union SöderS, called the International Committee (INTCOM) that arranges social activities for you as an international student while you attend Södertörn University. INTCOM consist of about half a dozen students, also attending Södertörn University, and who voluntarily spend their time arranging activities for the international students to enlighten them about Sweden, the Swedish way of life and Stockholm in general.
