Travel scholarships for students

Are you interested in studying at a NORDTEK partner university for a semester or two? If the answer is YES, please get in touch with the contact person at your university to get more information about the application process. You can find a list of contact persons here.

Application

You can apply for a scholarship to study at these universities. Applications with a study plan for full time studies must be submitted to the contact person at your home university by the application deadline.

Deadlines

March 31 for the following academic year (fall and/or spring semester)

October 15 for the following spring semester

 

Conditions

  • The scholarship is only for exchange studies and not for students who have been admitted as degree students to the host university.
  • The applicant must have achieved at least 60 ECTS credits for bachelor’s degree studies and at least 120 ECTS credits for master’s degree studies at the time of the application.
  • Scholarships are granted for one or two semesters.
  • During the exchange period, the scholarship recipient must be a resident in the same country as the host university. An essential element of the exchange is to get to know the host country’s culture.
  • The applicant cannot receive a scholarship to attend a university in the applicant’s own home country (i.e. country of nationality or normal country of residence) – it must be a foreign university.
  • Completed courses must be included in the student’s diploma.
  • If the exchange period is prematurely terminated, the grants must be repaid for the corresponding period.
  • The scholarship is subject to the minimum requirements for acceptable academic performance.
  • A student who has not participated in instruction and has not achieved any results at the host university will be required to pay back the entire scholarship.

Decision

A steering committee consisting of NORDTEK’s Secretary General, the Mobility Program coordinator and the national coordinators makes the decisions on the allocation of scholarships.

Payments

When you arrive at the host university, get in touch with the NORDTEK contact person there. Please bring with you the “Confirmation of student’s arrival form.

The contact person needs to sign the form. The grant will be paid to your account after you have sent the scholarship certificate (signed by you) and the student’s arrival certificate (signed by the local NORDTEK contact person) to the NORDTEK Mobility coordinator.

Prolonging the exchange period

If you plan to stay at the host university for one more semester, you may apply for another semester. You must send the application to the contact person at your home university.
Good luck with your NORDTEK studies!
