Exchange credit history

See the exchange credit history listing of courses that have been previously evaluated from Uppsala University. Note that this is a guide only, and not a guarantee that your courses would be evaluated in the same way.


As an exchange student, you are often given priority for student housing administered by Uppsala University Housing Office. We recommend you apply for housing this way, considering the difficulties in finding temporary housing that both Uppsala and Visby present.
