International Office

At the International Office, the international coordinators are responsible for developing new exchange agreements, as well as the administration of existing exchange agreements, with universities around the world. This work is closely coupled with the international tasks at each School within the University.

 At the moment the University of Skövde has more than 120 partner universities in over 30 countries worldwide. Exchange students visiting a partner university can study without paying any tuition fees. The international coordinators at the International Office can help you if you have questions regarding exchange agreements or other academic agreements between the University and foreign institutions and organisations. 

The University also works with European programmes such as Erasmus+ and Nordplus. Other programmes, such as SIDA-financed exchanges and projects and activities arranged through Linnaeus-Palme, are also important for the development of our internationalisation. The University of Skövde is also a member of the Erasmus Mundus network, LAMENITEC and Science without Borders in Brazil.
