Receiving an international student

Sahlgrenska Academy International Office (SAIO) works with exchange students coming to our academy from partner universities which we have agreements with. Students coming through these partnerships and agreements have been selected by our partner universities in competition with other students and are most often very qualified students with the right prerequisite and competence. By receiving students through bilateral agreements, opportunties are also created for Sahlgrenska academy students to study abroad and students can be sent in both directions. Agreement students are also offered accommodation and social services support from University of Gothenburg.

SAIO place international students in research groups continously. If you are interested to recive an international student in your research group, do not hesitate to contact us at saio@sahlgrenska.gu.se with possible research topic/research group.

Our partner universities can be found here.

Non-agreement students (traineeship/placement students)

Many international students contact researchers directly to do a traineeship in research groups, labs etc.

In those cases individual students are accepted to participate in a research group, it is recommended to contact SAIO and inform an international student has been selected. In these cases, SAIO can assist with some practical matters but more responsibility is put on the department and non-agreements students (unilateral students) do not get the same support with housing and social services as agreement students.
