Exchange scheme
As a student at UiS, you have the possibility to do a part of your degree abroad, without being delayed in your study program. The Faculty on Health Sciences encourages all students to go on exchange. Abroad you will gain in experience, broaden your network, and get new friends, personal growth and better language skills.

You need to start planning the exchange early, preferably one year ahead of traveling. To go on exchange will give you valuable experience and knowledge. It is exciting, fun – and not difficult if you start planning early!

UiS has a number of agreements with universities outside of 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 network. Find out more.
