A semester abroad is your opportunity to invest in unique competence in your field. We have exchange agreements with a number of renowned universities in Europe and North America, chosen for their quality and relevance for our own Philosophy Programme. Here you can find courses that complement those offered here at home. Through a semester abroad you can also improve your language skills, widen your network and get valuable international experience.
When can I study abroad?
We recommend that you take your second semester abroad. Students are recommended to work on their master's thesis or paper to the extent of 10 credits combined with taking courses of a total of 20 credits while they are abroad. If you have any questions regarding when and where to go, or questions regarding course selection, contact the advisor Lars Lønning.
