Students will take part in a semester long
exchange through the UW CSE department.
Classes at KTH will be conducted in English,
although students will have chances to learn
Swedish. Ideally, students will finish some of
the required 300-level CSE courses, visit
KTH during their junior year, then return to
UW for the final senior requirements.
However, an exchange during senior year is
also possible. Strong candidates
show personal preparation, including
and motivation to study abroad
| CSE majors interested in visiting KTH should
read through the general info on CSE
exchanges, speak with a CSE advisor, and
attend the annual info session on CSE
exchanges. More detailed information about
the KTH exchange can be found here.

Where You Will Study
Founded in 1827, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm is the largest and oldest technical university in Sweden. One-third of Sweden's technical reasearch and engineering education at the university level is provided by KTH. KTH has partnered with the UW CSE program to allow up to two CSE undergraduates to travel and study in Sweden for either one semester or a full academic year.
Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships
As a participant of a university exchange, you pay an exchange fee equivalent to UW tuition (1.5 quarters of UW tuition for semester-long exchanges, and 3 quarters of UW tuition for academic year exchanges). Exchange fees are determined by UW residency status: in-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to in-state tuition, and out-of-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to out-of-state tuition. The exchange fee and IPE administrative fee are charged to your UW account and due by the UW tuition deadline for your term(s) of study abroad. You should also budget for additional expenses such as international airfare & transportation, books & course materials, visa & passport fees, study abroad insurance and personal expenses.
Students should visit the KTH accomodations page

Departmental Exchanges generally focus on a specific academic discipline and often restrict participation to students in that department. Applications and student selection for Departmental Exchanges are managed by the UW academic department, but students participating in Departmental Exchanges work with the UW Study Abroad Office to complete the same pre-departure requirements as other UW study abroad students.
If you are interested in a Departmental Exchange, contact the department coordinator listed above for information, application instructions and deadlines.
Most application deadlines occur 6-8 months in advance of an exchange start date, so contact your department early.
Full-year exchange is encouraged, but single semester exchange is possible. Space is limited; students must apply through CSE and be selected. Students should plan primarily for senior/masters-level computer science & engineering courses abroad.
