International opportunities

As a student at Uppsala University, you have the opportunity to complete parts of your education abroad. On this page, we present the various options you have for international opportunities.

Which study abroad activity is right for you?

You have several options to gain international experience, such as participating in an exchange programme, taking summer courses or freestanding courses abroad. Additionally, you can do traineeships, field studies, or independent project abroad during your studies. Even after graduation, there are opportunities for international traineeships. If you are unable or prefer not to travel abroad, there are other ways to acquire international experience during your studies, such as courses in a blended teaching format.
