Can your research group host a student from Ukraine?

The European Commission has made it possible for higher education institutions that have mobility funds from Erasmus for their own students, to use them instead for incoming students from Ukraine.

As a result of the pandemic, KI has unused funds that can be used for this purpose, provided that the Commission's decision is not changed.

Call for research groups

We are therefore looking for research groups at KI who may consider accepting a student from Ukraine as an intern/traineeship student during the autumn term 2022, for 2-6 months. The student may be at bachelor's, master's or doctoral level. The length of the internships may be extended if funding is still available and the regulations are not changed.

Which students are eligible?

Eligible to apply are students from Ukraine who are in Sweden and are covered by the Temporary Protection Directive, and who at the time of the displacement were enrolled at a Ukrainian university. The application process will be handled by the Student Support Office when we know what opportunities we have to offer. If your research group can host one or several students, please fill out this notice of interest by 15 August 2022.
