Who is eligible to apply – student exchange

Nomination of your home university is required

You must be nominated by your home university so first step is to contact your local international office, Erasmus coordinator or any other party responsible on student exchange. Nomination deadlines are April 17 and October 2. Check also from your home university in which exchange programme you are eligible for. By clicking the link you find the partner universities with which LUT has an exchange agreement in the academic year 2020-2021.

If there is no exchange agreement between LUT and your home university, you may apply as a free mover. Each free mover application is considered case by case so please contact LUT Student Services, incomingexchange@lut.fi, for more information.
