Always begin by checking which institutions are recommended for you by searching for your study program in the map on the outbound exchange landing page.

On this website, you'll find an overview of various types of agreements and networks the University of Stavanger has with other educational institutions. You can, for example, check if UiS has an agreement with an institution in a country you are interested in, even if it is not specifically recommended in your study program.

Tuition fees

All students going on exchange must pay the semester fee at UiS and may be asked to pay an administration fee at the host institution.

Students going on exchange through Erasmus+ do not pay tuition fees to the host institution. Please note that institutions outside Europe usually require tuition fees, especially in USA and Australia. If you are eligible for financial support from the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen), you may apply for additional support for tuition fees.

International students paying tuition fees at UiS must still pay this fee during the exchange period and are not exempt from any tuition fees at the host institution.

Exchange as a Freemover student

If you don't find a suitable institution among UiS's agreements, you may consider going on exchange as a Freemover student. This requires taking responsibility for the entire process, without support from the International Office.
