Application to AU

Online application

You must submit your online application for an exchange position in the MoveON application portal. In the Here you can specify the universities you want to apply to, and you can upload any requested attachements.

The application portal opens approx. one month before the application deadline. The required attachements must be submitted by the same deadlines as above.  

Find information about AU's partner universities in the MoveON database. Always read the descriptions of the universities you want to apply to very carefully. It is also important that you make sure that the selected universities offer subjects that are relevant to you and your degree programme. Also, remember to check whether some of the universities demand documentation for your language skills.

Please note that you increase your chances of being granted an exchange place abroad if you apply broadly. We recommend that you apply to at least 5-8 different universities. 

The application to AU is for internal use only. If you are granted an exchange place, you will also be required to apply to the host university. You will automatically receive more information about this on your AU email.

Under "Destinations" in the left side menu, you will be able to find a list of available positions.
