Electronic application forms
The international office uses an electronic application form that is published online about one month before the application deadline each semester. Up to three educational institutions can be entered in the electronic application form in order of priority. It is only possible to apply for an exchange to educational institutions with which UiS has an exchange agreement. Check carefully that you satisfy any formal requirements.

After submitting your application you will receive confirmation that your application was received and further information about the process by email. Students who have received higher education in other educational institutions either in Norway or abroad are asked to immediately submit documentation for this education in English.

Talk to the student adviser of your department if you would like to go on a student exchange, but there are no recommended educational institutions in your study programme.
