Student exchange

Exchange semester
Semester 2

Exchange scheme
Students can go on a study abroad experience during the 2nd semester of the master's program in
biological chemistry.

During the exchange semester you shall choose subjects similar to your master program specialization.
The courses you want to take abroad must be approved by the department. It is important that the
subjects/ courses from abroad not overlap with subjects you have already taken. It’s advisable is to
think about your specialization and your field of interest.

For the specialization in molecular biology this semester consists of 30 ECTS credits of electives.

For the specialization in organic chemistry this semester consists of 20 ECTS credits of obligatory
courses in Organic Chemistry and 10 ECTS credits of electives. For study abroad these mandatory
courses may be replaced by courses within any aspect of advanced organic chemistry.

More possibilities
In addition to the recommended institutions listed below, UiS has a number of agreements with universities outside Europe, which are open to all students at UiS who find a relevant course offer.

Within the Nordic countries, all students can use the Nordlys and Nordtek networks. Find out more.

It is also possible to take courses at The University Centre in Svalbard (Norway).
