Erasmus+ for doctoral students

As a doctoral student there are many exchange opportunities during your doctoral studies. You can go away to take courses, learn a new way of working, teach, visit a research group, and make important contacts for the future.

You are regarded both as student and staff can therefore apply for exchanges that apply to both groups. Exchanges that take place within the framework of Erasmus+ are scholarship funded.

Take the opportunity to build an international network, broaden your horizons and create new opportunities in your future career!

Exchange studies/traineeship as a doctoral student

As a doctoral student, you can go on mobility for studies or traineeship from 2–12 months. As a doctoral student, you can use the traineeship for; research experience, data collection and to write your thesis. You can go on exchange for a maximum of 12 months at doctoral level. The mobility does not have to give higher education credits to be approved but must be approved within your education at Umeå University.

Staff exchange as a doctoral student (not research)

Going on exchange as staff means opportunities to develop skills by, for example, job shadowing or making study visits to a company or higher education institution in a Programme country where there is an interesting research group or that has equipment or works with methods that you want to learn more about. It is important to highlight how mobility is linked to the internationalisation work at Umeå University and especially your own work tasks.
