Degree project abroad

There are different ways to write your thesis abroad. You can do your degree project during an Erasmus+ or Nordplus exchange if you find a topic and a supervisor yourself, and follow the other rules of the exchange programme. The project must be linked to one of SLU’s partner universities, and can be done in conjunction with taking courses at that university. You apply during the same period as for the application for exchange studies.

Another way to write your degree project abroad is via an Erasmus+ grant for internship. This option can help to finance field work, data collection, or research for your degree project (bachelor/master thesis) abroad anywhere within EU. 

An Erasmus+ grant for internship allows you to perform your thesis project as part of a research project at another university, or as part of an internship or work at a company or other organization.

Note: Either way, you will need to have supervisor from SLU, as well as a local supervisor on site - which you must arrange yourself. You will only need to present your thesis back at SLU when it is complete, and you must be registered in a thesis course here at SLU.

You can also choose to write your thesis at an ELLS university, and get financed by an Erasmus+ scholarship.
