Application for an exchange period

In these pages you'll find out how to go about when applying for an exchange period.
Please note that you can only apply as an exchange student after being nominated by your home university. Please contact your coordinator at your home university before you apply.

The application process can be divided into five parts:

1. Nomination

The coordinator at your home university sends an official nomination to MDH. Nominations are sent to the School that hosts the exchange agreement between your home university and MDH.

2. Confirmation

The international coordinator at MDH will officially accept/decline the nomination.

3. Online application

During the application period a link to the online application will be visible here on this page. The international coordinator from the school that you will pursue your studies will also send you a link to this page. Please read the information in the online application carefully and fill in all the information requested.

Once you have started your application, you will be required to select the courses you are interested in studying during your exchange period at MDH. The established cooperation between your home university and MDH indicates the subject areas that you can study at MDH. Application to courses within subject areas not included in the exchange agreement between your home university and MDH is possible however admission to those courses depends on the fulfillment of the eligibility requirements and the availability of study places in the desired course. It is important that you choose courses that don’t collide with each other schedule-wise and that you apply for full-time studies, which is 30 ECTS during one semester.

Courses for exchange students

For information on regards to the schedule collision course please review the information sent to you by the international coordinator in charge of your application.

In your online application it is mandatory to submit the following documents:

  • Transcript of records (the transcript should include all your university studies from the first semester on, even if you have studied at other university than the one you are currently studying at)
  • Certificate of current studies (Upload the document you got sent to you by your international coordinator at MDH, which is also available to download below "certificate of current studies". Please note that this certificate is mandatory.

Learning agreement

It is important that you use the learning agreement that your university wishes to use for its administrative purposes (we do not require that our own learning agreement be used in order to process and application). Decide together with your home coordinator/teacher which courses offered by MDH you wish to apply for and fill out the form accordingly. The form must be signed by both you and your coordinator/teacher as well as stamped.

If your university does not have a specific learning agreement, you can use either of the following learning agreements:


4. Assessment

Your application will be assessed by the international coordinator in charge of your application. Keep an eye out for any emails sent to you by the coordinator.


5. Letter of admission

Once the assessment is made and potential changes are agreed upon, a letter of admission will be issued. A finalised online application cannot be changed, so please read the instruction carefully when you make your online application.
