We have a long list of partnering universities in many countries around the world.
Research and inspiration
If you consider studying abroad as part of your degree, it is important to do some research. Finding information about different opportunities at different schools around the world can take time, and it is a good idea to start early.
Students, who have already gone through the process of arranging studies abroad can give you useful information and put you in touch with relevant individuals at schools abroad. It is also a good idea to contact our guest students from universities abroad – they can tell you about student life and study structures at their home university.
Also, use your lecturers and teachers. They often have research or teaching connections at partnering universities around the world.
Contacting the university abroad
The initial contact to an educational institution abroad usually goes through the international coordinator at the school. However, it is a good idea to seek general information on each school’s website prior to contacting the international office.
On the schools’ websites you will be able to find information about application deadlines, courses and other topics. Start your research process early. We recommend that you establish contact with an international coordinator at your chosen institution at least 6 months before your planned departure. This way, you will have someone you can direct your questions to during your application and preparation process.
