JTH

There are three selections held each year. Information about deadlines and selections.

When you are applying you must have at least 80% of the possible number of points within your programme. These must be approved and reported to Ladok prior to the selection for exchange studies at the School of Engineering.

For programmes started fall 2016 and earlier

  • 3 -year engineering programme: Students who wish to go on exchange during the third year are a priority group. You can also go on exchange in the year immediately after your education, but not in the priority group. Admission is subject to availability. In such cases you may not have taken your degree before the exchange study is fully completed.
  • 2-year Degree: Students studying Graphic Design and Web Development, Lighting Design and Computer Networking Technology, who wish to study abroad for the year immediately after their education, are a priority group. In such cases, you may not have taken your degree before the exchange study is fully completed.
  • Other 2-year graduate programmes are not included in the exchange programme currently. The opportunity is opened for studying abroad during the third additional Bachelor Year. Students can study abroad the year immediately after the programme. Students are counted in the priority group of applicants. Students may not take their degree before the exchange study is fully completed.
  • Master (2 years): Students can study abroad during the second year of the programme and have priority in the selection process. The opportunities for masters students are assessed on a case by case basis and a key factor is the availability of interchangeable courses at the partner university. Students can currently study abroad through the School of Engineering’s exchange programme in the year right after education, but not in the priority group.
  • International campus exchange: There are opportunities for some programmes to go on exchange at a JTH International Campus Partner. The exchange includes studies at a specific partner university and the Industrial Placement Course (NFK/IPC) at a company abroad or Final Project Work at a company abroad.

It may also be possible to do the final project work semester abroad. Master students can not go on exchange after the programme.

 

The selection is based on the following (JTH)

Points are given for the three parts and the total determines a student’s rank in the priority group.

  • Credits belonging to the education programme. NV-courses included in the normal study plan for your programme are included in the selection. For students who do not take NV courses, you are able to count up to 15 hp extra courses, provided they are taken in the same time you read your programme
  • One factor is given for grade point average. 
  • Extra curricular activities. You travel as an ambassador for the School of Engineering and therefore you can include other qualifications, such as involvement in HI TECH and the university. Engagement provides Study abroad points according to the list, available at the International Relations and HI TECH, along with instructions on how to get the points. If you want to have these points included in the selection this must be reported to HINT at certain times during the academic year.

Priority Groups (JTH)

Students are divided into different priority groups in the competition. See above. Additional factors affect the priority group. If a student has already accepted a place in the selection but then wants to find one for a second exchange semester, priority will go to those who have not had a place before. Also, a student who declines an offered place will be moved into a lower priority group at the next application period, unless there are special circumstances.

Continuation Requirements (JTH)

In order to begin the second or third year, a minimum number of credits from the programme’s earlier year must be completed to be able to go on exchange studies.
