Exchange Studies - Department of Economics

Through the University’s exchange agreements, part of a programme can be undertaken at a foreign university and then included in the Swedish degree. At Uppsala University, the International Office administers and provides information regarding the University’s general exchange programmes.

Including foreign studies in your degree

Courses which have been completed at a foreign university may be included in a degree at Uppsala University. Courses in economics which you have taken at a foreign university and want to have included in your degree should be at a level comparable to Economics B or Economics C.

Before your departure, it is advisable that you make sure that the courses you plan to take will be approved by the Department of Economics. This kind of inquiry should include information about course content, reading list, level and length. Please note that it may take a few weeks to process such a request.

Transferring course credits towards your degree is done after your return. The form on the link below should be used. An official record of completed courses should be enclosed with the application. The application should include information in Swedish or English about course content, reading list, level, length, and system of credits and grading. Please note that it may take a few weeks to process such an application.

Form for transferring foreign course credits (Swedish only, contact your study counsellor for help.)
