Requests from freemovers

The programme in medicine does not administrate applications from visiting free mover students and/or Erasmus placement students.

Erasmus Placements do not follow the procedures of a regular Student Exchange. An intern is considered to be an employee at the hospital and not a student.A student status and student benefits can therefore not be provided. Students wishing to do their internship at a hospital in the region Västra Götaland need to independently apply for the internships directly from the department in question and arrange with the supervisor any practical matters.

Useful link for Swedish speaking students within Europe:
Praktik för dig som studerar till läkare inom EU/EES
 

 *A freemover is an international student who applies to a university abroad on his/her own, without beeing part of an exchange programme.
