Prepare a Learning Agreement

Information on how to prepare a Learning Agreement when applying for exchange studies.

Prepare the Learning Agreement 

"Learning Agreement for studies" is an agreement and quality assurance on the content of mobility between the student and the sending and receiving university. Among other things, the LA describes the planned mobility period, course codes, course titles and number of expected ECTS.

When Dalarna University has sent your nomination to the partner university, you will receive information from them about the courses you can study, how to find syllabi and how to apply.

Once you have found the courses you want to study, prepare your Learning Agreement.
You often need to attach your Learning Agreement already when you submit your application to the partner university. The Learning Agreement must be completed no later than one month after the start of the semester.

If you need to make changes during the semester, it is important that you update your Learning Agreement as soon as possible. 

Program students without an optional semester

Once you have found courses that you want to study, you should go through the courses with the programme coordinator to ensure that the courses can replace the programme courses that you would have studied at HDa.
Send the program coordinator's certification that the courses can be replaced, by e-mail to

Program students with optional semester and students that study independent courses

You have great freedom to choose courses yourself. However, it is important that the content of the courses you study at the partner university is not the same as the content of courses that you have already studied or will study after your mobility. In a degree, you cannot include two courses whose content overlap. Contact the programme coordinator or subject representative for help with that assessment. If you need to take courses during the mobility that are to be included in your main subject area, you need to contact subject representatives for assessment.
