The University of Skövde is part of the Erasmus+ Programme, which means that if the University of Skövde has a bilateral Erasmus+ agreement with your home institution, then you might be able to study here with an Erasmus+ grant.
We encourage you to pursue this option, since the Erasmus+ scholarships are often very generous.
