To be a north2north student, you must:

north2north exchange Principles:

  1. The exchange period can involve regular courses, practical training, project work, field courses and summer courses.

  2. The exchange period at the host institution will typically be 3-12 months at the Bache­lor and Masters levels. Practical training, project work, summer courses and field courses are eligible alternatives for an exchange period of less than 3 months. Shorter exchange period can also be practical for Indigenous people, remote learners, students from small communities and adult students.

    Mobility to and from Denmark, Faroe Islands and Greenland are in addition open for PhD students and conference attendance with an accepted paper, etc.
  1. All academic achievement should be fully recognized at the home institution and count towards yours degree requirements. The exchange period should not normally extend the total study time. Assets beyond academic achievement can be considered on an individual basis. Learning agreements shall be drafted and signed by you and at both home and host institutions prior to the study-abroad period.

  2. Under the north2north student exchange program, you will normally not have to pay tuition fees at the host institution and will maintain enrolment at your home institution, which may or may not collect fees, depending on the local system.

    If your home institution does not have a bilateral agreement with the host institution, you will have to pay a fee for mobility to Denmark. According to Danish law, students can only be offered fee waivers if there is a bilateral agreement between the home and host institutions

    For mobility to North America, you will have to pay tuition if you are not allocated a North American Tuition Fee Waiver. The north2north Student Mobility Program has to its disposal a number of north2north tuition waivers. You apply for a North American tuition waiver by choosing the option in the north2north Application form.

First priority is given to:

  • students who participate in UArctic programs and courses, such as Thematic Network activities and Circumpolar Studies

  • is motivated to contribute meaningfully in building human capacity in the Arctic
  • students going on an exchange to another north2north institution outside their home region (i.e. North America, Nordic, Russia).

    • Building Human Capacity in the North: culturally relevant training and education for sustainable Northern communities
    • Adaption to Climate Change: challenges for human society as well as nature.
