How to apply for outgoing exchange

This information is for Nord University students that want to apply for an exchange.  

To be eligible to apply to go on an exchange you must be a degree student at Nord University (bachelor, master or PhD) and you must have taken 60 credits (ECTS) before your departure.

The application deadlines are January 20th for the autumn semester (and full year) and September 1st for the spring semester.  

  • Log in to Søknadsweb.

    Here you will have to fill out “My Profile” (including name, address etc) 

    Choose “Utveksling” (exchange) admission.  

  • Choose three agreements that you wish to apply to.  

    The faculties share some agreements and they will therefore appear several times. Remember to pick your faculty. 

    Faculty abbreviations explained: 

    FBA: Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture 

    FLU: Faculty of Education and Arts  

    FSV: Faculty of Social Sciences  

    FSH: Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences 

    HHN: Nord University Business School 

    Note: If you wish to go to an institution that Nord does not have an agreement with, choose the option “Individbasert mobilitet”. You must write in the comment section “extra information” which institution you wish to go to. 

  • Send in your application in Søknadsweb.

    A receipt will appear on the Søknadsweb page and you will receive a receipt by email. 

    You can make changes to your application up until the application deadline. Due to limitations on certain agreements, we cannot guarantee your first choice.  

  • You will recieve an answer within 3 weeks of the application deadline. It is your responsibility to decline or accept the offer when it is published in the Søknadsweb portal. If you do not accept within a week of recieving your offer, it will be considered a withdrawal of your application. 

    The next step in the application process is an external application to the host institution. You will receive more information about this following your nomination. It is important to note that being nominated does not mean that you have been guaranteed a place for exchange. It is the host institution that has the final say on the outcome of your application.  

    If you have any questions about your application or cannot find an institution, you can contact your faculty coordinator or the International Office at Nord University.
