Master's programmes in English
KTH offers a large number of Master's programmes in English. These programmes are open to students with a Bachelor's degree within a discipline relevant to the programme. The Master's programmes present an opportunity for students with excellent academic performance to obtain a competitive Master's degree of the highest international standard. KTH also offers Erasmus Mundus Master's programmes and EIT master's programmes - both of which include compulsory mobility and excellent scholarship opportunities.
KTH manages and participates in a large number of international projects. The majority are funded by EU cooperation programmes such as LLLP/Erasmus, Erasmus Mundus, Marie Curie, Tempus and Leonardo da Vinci, others by national programmes such as Linnaeus-Palme.
KTH is a member of several prestigious international networks.
When it comes to establish new collaborations within education and research, KTH will focus on four selected regions. These are India, China, Southeast Asia and Brazil. These priorities will primarily form a base for recruiting non-European master's students.
