Exchange Studies at the Department of Environmental Science

Studying abroad is a fantastic opportunity for many students to discover the world. Studying abroad not only provides the opportunity to study complementary courses in Environmental Science, but also provides many new life experiences. The experience is often considered a valuable merit when applying for a job, as well as improving students’ language skills.

Many students also find it exciting to experience a different country and culture. There are many opportunities to study abroad, both near and far. Students at Stockholm University can study abroad at one of our partner universities around the world. The Department of Environmental Science has Erasmus agreements with some universities in Europe, and also a faculty agreement with a university in Singapore.

In other respects, Stockholm University has many central agreements with universities all over the world. All students at Stockholm University can apply for these agreements. The Department of Environmental Science has its own agreements.

There are currently Erasmus agreements with three prominent universities in Germany, but several agreements are underway. Sometimes there may also be places left on other scientific institutions’ agreements, so get in touch if you are interested in another agreement. Existing agreements in Environmental Science:

Nanyang Technological University of Singapore

Aachen University in Germany

University of Bayreuth in Germany 

– Goethe University Frankfurt in Germany

Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich in Switzerland

– Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany
