Go on exchange

Go on exchange

Of course you should go on exchange! With more than 400 partner universities worldwide, Åbo Akademi University offers a great 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.

To the right hand side, you will find a short overview of instructions of how you apply for exchange studies at Åbo Akademi University, to understand how the process works.

The application for the study year 2023-2024 can be found also on the right hand side and the deadline is 3 February 2023 at 15:00. In our application portal SoleMove, you should choose “Application Form” for outgoing student mobility. Remember that if you intend to apply for an ISEP programme, you should also complete the ISEP application. For more information on ISEP applications, please contact Katie Fagerström (Vasa).

Also check out our “When and how should I apply” page.

Is you intend to go on exchange as a freemover, i.e. on your own, you do not need to complete an application with Åbo Akademi, but instead read more on the page “Applying on your own”

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
