Exchange Destinations in the Nordic Countries


You can apply for exchange in a Nordic country through the Erasmus+ programme or the Nordplus programme, which is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers. However, please note that the Nordplus programme is not intended to doctoral students. Browse exchange destinations in Mobility-Online -portaal. Select Erasmus Student Mobility or Nordplus as the exchange programme and select your study field.

If you would like to study your own discipline through the Nordplus exchange programme, see the list of field-specific Nordplus networks below. For further information, please contact the mobility coordinator and/or academic contact person.

If you cannot find a network for your own field of study, you can apply for exchange through the Nordlys network, which is intended for students of all disciplines. You can also apply through the Nordlys network if you wish to complete the exchange period in your minor subject. The Nordlys network currently includes almost all Nordic multidisciplinary universities. More information is available from the university’s Nordlys coordinator Mira Kauppinen.
