What we offer

The minimum stay for Erasmus+ studies is 90 days. The following is included (total: 21 ECTS): 

  • 1 week of introduction to primary and emergency health care (theory)
  • 4 weeks of clinical placement primary health care
  • 4 weeks of clinical placement in nursing in emergency care (some theory in primary health care may be studied parallel to the clinical placement if needed)
  • Global nursing, 5 weeks. For our students this is an elective course replacing the previous course Field studies in culture and health that incoming Erasmus students previously have studied. We recommend this for incoming Erasmus students as it includes 2 weeks of field study (observational study) at a hospital.

This means that within the new curriculum, we offer incoming Erasmus students a total of 10 weeks of clinical placement. Due to internal regulations, we are unfortunately not able to offer students clinical placements that are not part of the above mentioned courses.

The SRCUC insurance coverage for incoming exchange students is limited to general liability insurance and accident insurance during study hours at the Swedish Red Cross University College. The student must arrange for her/his own insurance coverage, including: health, accident (outside study hours) and housing. Erasmus students will be asked to show these insurance coverages before arrival to the Swedish Red Cross University College.

Linnaeus-Palme students

Students enrolled at SRCUC within the Linnaeus-Palme programme receive a grant which covers the flight cost from their home countries to Sweden and back, their visa, insurance, public transportation in Stockholm, accommodation, as well as daily expenses during their 12-week stay.

The sum of the grant varies between the different Linnaeus-Palme projects. The student will get a third of the funds for daily living expenses upon arrival from the international coordinator, the second part after four weeks and the last payment when four weeks of the studies remain.

Travel arrangements

Students coming to our university college within the Linnaeus-Palme exchange programme will receive flight tickets, an invitation letter for their visa applications and an insurance certificate per e-mail or through the dean or international coordinator at their home institution.

Japan and Colombia - Global nursing

Students from the Japanese Red Cross College of Nursing in Tokyo, Japan, as well as students from Universidad del Magdalena in Santa Marta, Colombia, can come to Sweden for five weeks to join the course Global nursing (7.5 ECTS) at the SCRUC. During this period they will conduct field study in a health environment, for example at a hospital.

Students from both partner universities travel to the SCRUC through a bilateral agreement and nominations and applications of the students are done directly to the SCRUC International office at ic@rkh.se.
