Exchange students

The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences, GIH, has cooperation agreements with a number of partner universities, mainly in Europe, through Erasmus+ and Nordplus. 

International engagement is important for GIH and each semester we welcome exchange students from our partner universities to study one or two semesters in Stockholm.  

Study at GIH as an exchange student 

To be eligible to study as an exchange student at GIH, you need to be selected and nominated as an exchange student by one of our partner universities. Please contact the International Office at your home university for information on how to apply.

Note that programmes at most of the single study courses are given in Swedish. Exchange students with limited knowlegde in the Swedish language may be offered English support in order to complete their studies. Appropriate support for the courses is subject to agreement and availability.
