SBS exchange programme

Most SBS-students have the opportunity to study abroad through our exchange agreements with partner universities around the world. We are partnered with roughly 100 partners in Europe, Asia, North- and South America and Oceania. Exchange studies are not subject to tuition fees, but additional administrative fees and living costs may apply. A list of available vacancies at partner universities is published on the Application website each semester. Please note that we do not send students to all our partners each term, so be sure to check the list for your specific semester before you apply.


Stockholm University exchange programme (Central agreements)

Stockholm University offers all students that fulfil the pre-requsites the possibility to apply for  exchange studies through the central exchange agreements. For more information about application periods and processes see following site. Please note, the central agreements are all outside of Europe. 


Free mover

If you want to study at a university that does not have a partnership agreement with SBS you can apply as a “free mover”. Students who apply as free movers cover the application fee and tuition fees themselves, and are responsible to handle the visa applications on their own. it is the applicant who is responsible for contacting the host university about pre-requisites for courses, the application process and deadlines.
