The application deadline for exchange is approaching

The application deadline for applying for exchange scholarships for both students and staff is approaching.

If you want to go on exchange in the academic year 2021-2022, you must apply for it within the application deadline, which is the 12th of March. There are good exchange opportunities for our students and staff at Sami University of Applied Sciences within short-term and long-term exchange through the exchange programs Erasmus +, Barents + and North 2 North.

Scholarship oportunities

North 2 North has informed that Norway has been granted 23 tuition fee waivers through the north2north program to North American n2n universities for use in the academic year 2021-22. In addition to this scholarship, you can apply for an exchange scholarship from Statens Lånekasse. It is of course possible to go on an exchange even if you do not get one of these tuition fee waivers, if so you will be able to get extra scholarships from North 2 North.


THe 23 tuition fee waivers through North 2 North are to the following Universities in Northern America:
