Exchange Studies at Åbo Akademi University


These pages are for incoming exchange students who would like to study one semester or one academic year at Åbo Akademi University. Exchanges are always based on an agreement between Åbo Akademi University and the sending university. We do not accept freemover students.

We accept exchange students to both of our campuses in Åbo (Turku) and in Vasa (Vaasa).

Our subjects are divided into 4 faculties; of which 3 are in Åbo and 1 in Vasa.

By using the 360 degree picture service offered by the city of Åbo (Turku) you can take a look at our campus area and the city, both in the summer and in the winter time.
