Non-European Studies or Traineeship
- As a minimum, you should have completed your 1st year of studies, before you go on exchange.
- You must obtain the same amount of ECTS credits during your stay, as you would have at University College Absalon.
- You do not have to pay tuition fees, if you go to a University College Absalon partner (for studies). You can find the list of partners here.
- If you find the place of studies or traineeship on your own (as a “free-mover”), we cannot guarantee the quality of your stay.
How to – if you want to go to a University College Absalon partner institution
Contact the international coordinator in your Department, who will be able to tell you more about the opportunities for stays outside of Europe. You can also look at the overseas destinations here.
Before your exchange, an agreement is made between University College Absalon, you and the host institution that lists the contents of your stay (for example courses or tasks). The agreement also specifies how many ECTS credits you will receive after completing your exchange.
How to – if you want to find a destination on your own
For recommendations about which destinations might be interesting for you, contact your international coordinator.
If you receive Danish SU, you might be able to receive a scholarship to cover tuition fees. Contact the SU advisor in your Department for this.
Before your stay
You are responsible for making your own travel arrangements, as well as sorting out visa and residence/work permit (if necessary), adequate insurance and accommodation (often the host institution assist you with this). You can of course always contact your international coordinator for help and guidance.
