Apply for exchange studies
Every year, Malmö University welcomes more than 300 exchange students from all over the world. Being an exchange student is a great chance to broaden your academic horizons and get to know another country.
Applying for exchange studies
In order to be accepted as an exchange student you need to be a student at, and nominated by, one of our partner universities. The nomination is done by your home university through an online form. The link to the nomination form has been sent to all our partners.
1. Find courses and check eligibility
When you are nominated for exchange studies from your home university, you will receive a complete list of available courses via email. A complete list of courses to choose during the autumn semester is published in March every year, and the complete list for the spring semester is published in September each year.
Information on the course page
When you have found a course that you are interested in, you can find the following on the course page:
- Admission requirements
- Course dates
- Whether it's a full-time or part-time course
- Department: under the 'Contact' tab you can find the department or school where the course is offered
Finding out if you're eligible
You can find out if you are eligible by checking the admission requirements for the course or courses you are interested in. Some courses require that you have previously studied within the field. You may also have to prove English-language proficiency;
English language requirements for exchange students
Exchange students from countries not included in the Erasmus+ Programme and whose mother tongue is not English need to prove English-language proficiency. You do this by uploading the result of your TOEFL or IELTS, together with other required documents.
- IELTS: an academic test with an overall mark of 6.5 and no module under 5.5
- TOEFL (Paper-based): total score of at least 575. The written test must be at least 4.5 (scale 1–6)
- TOEFL (Internet-based): total score of at least 90. The written test must be at least 20 (scale 0-30)
Exchange students from countries included in the Erasmus+ programme are recommended to have at least B2 level.
Good to know about higher education credits:
- 30 credits are equivalent to one semester of full-time studies
- 15 credits are equivalent to half a semester of full-time studies, or a full semester of part-time (50%) studies
- 7.5 credits are equivalent to one-quarter of a semester of full-time studies, or a full semester of part-time (25%) studies
You can choose to combine part-time courses so that they add up to full-time studies. Be sure to check both course dates and credits carefully to make sure the number of credits add up to full-time studies. It is very important that you make sure that you do not, for example, choose two full-time 15 credit courses that run during the same dates.
Swedish for exchange students
All exchange students are offered a language course during their studies at Malmö University. The course, Swedish Language, Culture and Society 1A is equivalent to 5 higher education credits and is not included in your total of 30 selectable credits.
