COURSES FOR EXCHANGE STUDENTS
The enclosed letters contains detailed explanations for partners of the way our exchange courses and programs are organized. In addition, we kindly ask you to informing your students about the following:

Information for all students:
  • Students coming under agreements with School of Business and Economics are required to choose courses from School of Business and Economics and are not permitted to take courses from other Schools/Faculties (except Beginners’ Swedish).
  • Full time studies for one semester are 30 credits.
  • Students must fulfill the prerequisites for all courses they apply for and are admitted to courses on a first come, first served basis, based on the application date.
  • The possibilities to switch courses after the application is processed are limited and there is no add/drop period after arrival to Linnaeus University.

Specific Information for First level (Undergraduate) students:
  • Freestanding courses and courses with basic or prerequisites for up to one semester’s previous studies are only offered at Campus Kalmar
  • At Campus Växjö only full semester courses are offered and students are required to take the complete 30 credit course (not possible to choose/delete specific modules of the course). These courses are for students who want to study focused specializations and they have specific prerequisites, requiring 60-90 credits of previous studies in the subject in question. Students can only study one full-semester course of 30 credits per semester. If students cannot take any of the complete 30 credit courses, they must apply for single-subject courses at campus Kalmar.
  • Students staying a full year with us in Växjö cannot combine “Organization and Management studies” (2FE080) and “Management and Entrepreneurship in a Glocal Context” (2FE081) during the year since there is an overlap between these courses.

Specific Information for Second level (Master) students:
  • Master level students must also study full time at the School of Business and Economics
  • For full semester courses, the student is required to take the complete course.

Specific Information for Double degree students:
  • Double degree students and degree seeking students who plan to stay a full year for a degree must follow predesignated tracks from beginning to end.
  • It should always be stated by you in the nomination which double degree track your student shall study (i.e. management, marketing, international business etc.) as students will not have to choose courses themselves in these cases but courses will be assigned to them by the School.

Instructions about how to apply for courses will be sent with the application information to the students.
