Choosing Courses Abroad
This program does not have pre-approved classes. It is your responsibility to select courses and get them approved for transfer credit. To facilitate this process, you will complete the Petition for Transfer of Credit (PTC) Form. You will have access to the PTC form when you open an application.
You are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to look at this institution’s courses ahead of time to see how they will match up to your Mason degree requirements. Talk to your academic advisor about what courses you will need to receive credit for during your time abroad to stay on-track for your degree. When looking at courses keep in mind that 1) you will have to be enrolled full-time while abroad, and 2) similarly to Mason, course schedules can change. We recommend having twice as many courses approved as necessary.
2 ECTS = 1 US Credit
Jönköping University is located in the city center. The accommodation alternatives that are offered to international students are all located within 25 minutes travel by public transport from the university. All new international students are guaranteed accommodation, provided that they apply for accommodation correctly and announce their arrival in time. Students will be presented with accommodation upon arrival; unfortunately the accommodation coordinator will be unable to provide this information in advance.
Under certain circumstances students will be offered accommodation alternatives different from those listed in the accommodation and arrival application. This is due to housing shortages in Jönköping.
Once accepted into a program, it will be your responsibility to apply for a student visa and/or residence permit (if required, based on your citizenship). You will receive details on this with your acceptance letter. Do not apply for a visa until after you have been officially accepted. Visit the Embassy of Sweden's website for further information.
