What is important for you?

Detailed information about exchange opportunities on the exchange page for the programme:

As a PhD student in Person-Centered Health Care, you have three options for exchanges abroad.

  1. To go on an Erasmus+ staff mobility exchange. This is a shorter exchange, up to one week. An overview of application procedures requirements and details about this is found on the intranet. You have to go to a USN partner, but the entire Erasmus+ partner list can be used, not just those for the PhD programme.
  2. To find relevant courses at a partner institution that can fit into your study programme and stay for 3-6 months abroad as an exchange student. See list below. You apply for exchanges as an ordinary student, following the same deadlines and systems. Application information is found here. 
  3. To go to a relevant institution for 3-6 months, with funding from the USN mobility grant. The host does in this case not have to be among the USN partner portfolio.

Below is a list of partners that USN has an agreement with on PhD level within Health and Social work.
