If you want to study outside Europe, you can apply for one of our overseas exchange places. If you get a place, you will automatically be awarded a grant from the university's Internationalization Fund.
There is a high demand for overseas exchange places, especially in the Anglo-Saxon countries and therefore we cannot always accommodate all applicants. It is therefore recommended that you consider multiple exchange places when you apply.
It is possible to go on overseas exchange through SDU both at your bachelor degree and at your master degree. Maximum one semester during each degree.
At some of our overseas partners it is stated that "Study Abroad" is an option. This means that SDU students can get a discount if they choose to study as a fee paying student. The "Study Abroad" option can be an opportunity in case you did not get the "free" exchange place, but are willing to pay to go to the university in question.
In case your application for the overseas exchange is rejected you will still have time to do a self-arranged study abroad period.
The list below has been updated per September 20th 2017 and the application deadline is November 1st 2017.
