Step 6 – What happens after the exchange?
If you have received Swedish Study Support from CSN it is important that you report your results to CSN. It may not always be the official transcripts but could also be an official print out from an online student system or student portal. If you continue to take additional support from CSN after your return you should have reported the results from your exchange within four weeks of the start of the new semester in order to avoid losing any funding.
Transfer of Credits
After finishing your exchange, you can apply for credit transfer to Uppsala University. All matters of credit transfer is handled by the Graduation Office except for credit transfer of units within the departments of Economics, Political Science and Law.
For any credit transfer it is necessary to keep documentation about units such as course outlines, literature lists, credits, level of study etc.
Be a Buddy
Your experience as an exchange student is invaluable to incoming students to Uppsala University. It is also a way for you to continue to benefit from your experience once back in Uppsala. Contact the Uppsala Student Union to inform them of your interest to be a buddy for incoming exchange students.
If you have received an International Credit Mobility grant (ICM), Erasmus grant or Nordplus grant you need to hand in a copy of your Learning Agreement to your coordinator at your department. If you have been on an exchange via the Division for Internationalisation, we ask you to follow the instructions given to you by email.
The following information is only relevant for students who went on an exchange through the Division for Internationalisation:
It’s important to us and to prospective exchange students that you share your experiences from your time abroad and about the guidance you received from the Division for Internationalisation. All students going on an exchange through the Division for Internationalisation are expected to provide a report upon completion of the exchange. The exchange report is open between 13 May, 2020 and 31 July, 2020. It is called "Exchange report-Division for Internationalisation's students-2020".
Transcripts are sometimes sent by the partner university directly to Uppsala University. This may take a few months, however, so if possible, make a request to the host university to also send you an original as soon as your results are available. Should our partner university send your transcript to the Division for Internationalisation at Uppsala University we will contact you as soon as they arrive. Once you have been contacted you have one year to pick your transcripts up before we dispose of them.
