Go on exchange

Go on exchange

Of course you should go on exchange! With more than 400 partner universities worldwide, Åbo Akademi University offers great opportunities for an international study experience. Exchange studies improve your language skills, and above all, give you memories for life. By getting to know people from other cultures, you learn about yourself and gain the confidence to face new situations. These skills will benefit you throughout your life, not only in the global job market.

Below is a short and simple overview of instructions, so you get an overall perspective of how the process works.
