We recommend that you spend one (or two) of the semesters during which you have a few mandatory courses, abroad.
When can I go?
Which semester you should take abroad will depend on the programme options you are following. The exchange should be organised in cooperation with your supervisor so you may select courses that are relevant to your master's programme. It may also be possible to work on your master thesis at one of our partner institutions.
Where can I go?
We recommend the following exchange agreements:
- University of Ottawa, Canada
- Carleton University, Canada
- Aarhus Universitet, Danmark
- Université Grenoble Alpes, Frankrike
- Université de Strasbourg, France
Our students may also have a study stay at The University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), which is the world's northernmost institution for higher education and research located in Longyearbyen 78°N.
Would you like to go somewhere else?
See the complete list of exchange agreements at the Department of Geosciences and the faculty’s list of student exchange options, or the university’s exchange agreements. You may also study abroad at your own initiative, independent of any of the University of Oslo’s agreements.
Studies at Svalbard
Many of our students have a study stay at The University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS). UNIS offers many exciting courses in geosciences. At UNIS you will meet an international community with students and researchers from all over the world. See short movies: Geologi og geofysikk | Geofysikk og fysikk | Sikkerhetskurs
