The letter of acceptance

The application can take between 2 to 3 weeks to be processed. We kindly ask for your patience.Students within Europe will only receive the letters of acceptance by email (if you don’t request the originals). Students from outside Europe will receive it by email and to the home address.

Selecting courses

Full time load is 30 credits per semester. Please notice the prerequisites for each course and that there are some courses that have special restrictions! Master level students may select courses in both Bachelor and Master level. Bachelor level students may only select courses in the Bachelor level.

Courses that do not attract a minimum number of participant may be cancelled. In that case students must choose another course. In addition, it is possible that some courses may clash with each other. Thus, it is important that all exchange students select alternative courses in the online application. School of Engineering also reserves the right to limit exchange student enrolment in classes that are at capacity.  

General requirements

The general prerequisite for bachelor exchange students is at least one year of completed university studies at the home institution before the exchange semester. For applicants interested in master level courses, we recommend prerequisites with the equivalence of a bachelor degree of at least three or four years. When signing the choice of courses - confirmation the home institution certifies that the student fulfil the prerequisites for each chosen course.

English language requirements

Generally speaking, the home university guarantees a student's fluency in English, by signing a course confirmation statement. Although language test scores are not formally required, all students are expected to meet the university's minimum English requirements and students must receive a signature from a representative of their home university guaranteeing their fluency in English. Students without the adequate level of English run the risk of failing the course.

ECTS Grading Table

In order to pursue the objective of making European grades more transparent, the ECTS grading scale based on a predetermined percentage structure with grades A-F, is to be replaced by the ECTS grading table (EGT). EGT will provide in a standard table form the statistical distribution of the grades. In other words, instead of trying to fit existing grading practices in a standard distribution scale, universities need only to determine the actual percentage of students that receive each ‘local’ grade.

According to a decision taken by the president of Jönköping University, School of Engineering will replace the ECTS grading scale with EGT from the autumn semester 2014.

The EGT table for each course will be included in the transcript of records for students who’ve studied at School of Engineering.
