The Swedish Red Cross University College annually seeks external funding to offer both our students and staff opportunities to study and work abroad as well as to be able to welcome foreign guest students and teachers.
Erasmus + is a collaboration between colleges and universities in Europe. Students and staff at the Swedish Red Cross University College can study and serve at a higher education institution in another European country through the programme. The Swedish Red Cross University College has agreements with several European universities.
During semester 5, students can participate in the Erasmus programme and conduct exchange studies for at least 13 weeks. Most often, both work-based education and theoretical courses are included, and you may acknowledge these courses in your nursing education. When you participate in the programme, you will receive a scholarship to cover travel expenses and parts of your living expenses during the exchange. The scholarship is 400-460 euros per month, depending on which country you visit.
Students at the Swedish Red Cross University College may work abroad and gain experience relevant to their education. By doing a traineeship abroad with Erasmus+, they can improve their communication, language and inter-cultural skills.
Erasmus + internship is an exchange program that allows students to be an intern in an organization, such as in a hospital, in another European country. The student receives a scholarship to practice for two months, for instance, during the summer months, or within a year after graduating from university. However, the students must apply for the internship while still studying at the Swedish Red Cross University College. The internship does not give higher education credits, but the Ladok extract will include a notion about the completed internship.
Linnaeus-Palme is an international exchange programme for Swedish teachers and students who want to conduct educational collaboration with universities and colleges in low- and middle-income countries. The Swedish Council for Higher Education is responsible for the programme and Sida finances it.
The Linnaeus-Palme funding for teacher and student exchanges is applied for one academic year at a time. A specific higher education institution can receive funding for a total of eight years. There must be a mutual academic benefit with the exchange programme.
Minor Field Studies
Minor Field Studies is a Sida-funded scholarship programme that aims to enable university and college students in Sweden to write their degree projects in so-called low- and middle-income countries, on a subject relevant to development issues.
