Short-term mobility

If you who want to experience studying abroad without being away for an entire semester, there may be shorter international opportunities that are more suitable. On this page, you will find information about available such opportunities and how to apply. If you have elective courses within the scope of your program, it may be possible to count, for example, international summer courses as part of your degree.

Short-term international opportunities open for all students at GU

There are several opportunities to gain international experience both at home and through shorter stays abroad via the University of Gothenburg (GU). These include summer courses within GU's Summer School for Sustainability, within the Nordlys network, and also through the EUTOPIA network. Occasionally, there are other opportunities to get involved or take shorter courses, and these are advertised on this page. Learn more about eligibility and how to apply for the various opportunities below. Please note that the application process is not the same as for regular exchange, and the application period varies depending on the partner institution.
