We recommend that you go abroad during one (or two) of the semesters where you do not have many mandatory courses.
The best point of time to go abroad will vary depending on which study discipline you are following. The exchange should be arranged in cooperation with your supervisor so you can select courses that are relevant to your master's programme. It may also be possible to work on your master thesis at a partner institution.
We would especially recommend these exchange agreements for master students in geosciences:
- University of Ottawa, Canada
- Carleton University, Canada
- Hokkaido University, Japan
- Kitami Institute of Technology, Japan
- University of Tsukuba, Japan
- University of Bristol, England
- Université de Strasbourg, Frankrike
Our students also go to The University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), which has many exciting courses in geosciences.
Would you like to go somewhere else? See the complete list of exchange agreements at the Department of Geosciences and the faculty’s list over study exchange options. You should also check out the university’s exchange agreements. Finally, you may also study abroad at your own initiative, independently of any of the University of Oslo’s agreements.
