5. Am I nominated?
A few weeks after the application deadline, you will be informed about the outcome. Note that a nomination is not the same thing as a guaranteed exchange opportunity. Instead, a nomination means that the University of Gothenburg has given you permission to submit a detailed application to a specific host university.
6. Accept or reject nomination
If you are offered a nomination spot at an exchange university, you will receive an email from Mobility-Online with a link to the system. In some cases, you may also receive an offer via email directly from your international coordinator. If you wish to accept the spot, log in to Mobility-Online and confirm within the specified response period (which may vary depending on the faculty/department). Also, follow any additional instructions provided by your international coordinator.
Failure to respond within the given time frame will be considered as declining the offered spot, and it will then be offered to another student. A student who accepts but later changes their decision without a valid reason (such as illness) before the exchange begins may be placed at the bottom of the priority list for future exchange applications.
7. Apply to the partner university
If you accept your nomination, you will receive separate information from the responsible international coordinator, either at your faculty, department or at the International Centre, regarding how you should proceed with an application to your allocated host university.
Your international coordinator will assist and support you with the application to the exchange university. However, it is your responsibility to complete and submit the application according to the instructions and deadlines you receive. The coordinator can assist with certificates from GU and academic inquiries, but tasks such as the visa process, accommodation application, travel planning, and so on, are your responsibility.
The likelihood of your application being accepted by the exchange university is typically high, but it is always at the discretion of the host university to accept or reject an application.
