How to apply
Jonkoping University will receive nominations from the student’s home university, after which the student will be provided with a username and password to be able to log in to our online application. All exchange students are required to apply online and to fill out all the information requested in the application such as personal information, choice of courses, and so forth.
After completing the online application, the student must have the Choice of Courses confirmation signed by the coordinator at their home institution and upload it in the online application system, together with a copy of their transcript of records and passport, before the application deadline. We do not require any original documents.
When do I recieve the letter of acceptance?
The application can take between 2 to 3 weeks to be processed. We kindly ask students to be patient. European students will only receive their letters of acceptance by e-mail (if they do not request the original). Students from outside Europe will receive it by e-mail and to their home address (in order to be able to apply for a residence permit).
Courses that do not attract a minimum number of participants may be cancelled. In that case students must choose another course. In addition, it is possible that some courses may clash with each other. Thus, it is important that all exchange students select alternative courses in the online application form.
