Incoming exchange students

The Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies is one of Stockholm University's profile areas, which means that the department is nationally-leading in research concerning archaeology. At the Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies we offer one course at bachelor level and PhD degrees in four different subjects.

The application process for exchange students is different from that for other international students. First you contact your home university and ask for the application procedure and deadlines.

If you have been nominated for exchange studies at The Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies by your home university you will receive a Letter of Acceptance, a course application form, a registration form along with other important information by e-mail. The course application form should be returned by e-mail to by the deadline stated on it. You should also send a transcript of records listing previous studies.

Study at Stockholm University


Learning Swedish

Why not take the opportunity to learn Swedish while in Sweden? There are several options to consider.

The Department of Swedish Language and Multilingualism give courses for International Students.

Swedish for International Students

A more informal way of learning Swedish is to take part in the Language cafe. While having a cup of coffee or tea you speak to native speakers and other learners. The cafes are run by student native speakers on a voluntary basis.

The Language cafes

The Swedish Institute give free Swedish courses online. At the same time as learning the language you also get insights into Swedish culture and society.
