You must apply for final approval of your semester abroad when you return home.
Transcript of records
Before returning to Norway, you are responsible for obtaining a valid transcript of records for the courses/exams you have taken at the host institution and/or a confirmation of the traineeship. Sometimes you get this documentation before leaving, or it is sent to your address in Norway.
Some of the educational institutions we work with will send your transcript of records directly to the International Office. In such cases, we forward the transcript to your department which will send you a confirmation email.
Application for final approval
You will find the application form for final approval in the Digital service desk.
Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that the contact person at your department at the University of Stavanger receives your transcript of records or a confirmation of the internship, so that your student exchange can be formally approved. You will not be issued a diploma until this approval is in place.
Student exchange on your diploma
The courses you have taken during your semester abroad will be listed together with recognised courses from other educational institutions on your diploma. The name of the courses will be listed, but how this is done varies somewhat depending on the department. Grades from foreign educational institutions will not be converted to the Norwegian grading scale.
For subsequent job applications or an application for admission to other programmes, you should include your transcript of records from the host institution together with your diploma from UiS.
