Who can become an Erasmus student?

Students enrolled at Chalmers can apply for the Erasmus exchange programme regardless of nationality.

The following conditions must be met:

  • You must be admitted to a programme at Chalmers.
  • You must have completed 60 credits at Chalmers. 
  • You have to transfer the credits of the exchange in your degree at Chalmers.
  • You are not allowed to have any other EU-funding or scholarship.
  • You must not have received an Erasmus scholarship before.

If you have received a scholarship to come to Chalmers, you may not be eligible to participate in a student exchange programme. You must have passed all your courses during your first semester at Chalmers (30 credits) to be considered for an exchange.

Fee paying students

Students who pay tuition fees are eligible for Erasmus studies unless they have certain scholarships.
 
Holders of Avancez, IPOET and Chalmers MasterCard Scholarship who conduct exchange studies are entitled to keep their scholarship during their exchange studies, under the condition that remaining tuition fees, if applicable, are paid to Chalmers during the entire Master's Programme. Upon completion of the studies the diploma should be issued by Chalmers.
 
Fee paying students who have a scholarship other than Avancez, IPOET and Chalmers MasterCard are not automatically entitled to retain their scholarship during exchange studies. Such decisions are made on a case by case basis, in consultation with the external donor.

Selection criteria

The selection is based on a weighted average grade. Both the number of credits and grades are considered. Architecture students are assessed by the Department of Architecture based on portfolios.
