We recommend that you spend one (or two) of the semesters during which you have 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 has many exciting courses in geosciences. UNIS is the northermost higher educational institution and is situated in Longyearbyen at Svalbard.
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.
