Mobility grants for students

The Norteas network applies for student mobility funding through the Nordplus Higher Education programme. Students who wish to apply for mobility grants should contact the international coordinator of their home institution for further advice and guidance.

Nordplus supports the following types of mobility for students:

 

Long term student mobility

This type of mobility is for studies abroad lasting for 1-12 months. The grant is available to degree students of any nationality studying at the bachelor or the master level in one of the NorTeas member institutions, planning to spend a period abroad at another NorTeas member institution. PhD students are not eligible for a Nordplus student mobility grants.

The Norteas network recommends that Erasmus+ funding is used when possible in case of studies abroad exceeding 3 months.

 

Express mobility

This type of mobility is for short term studies of 1 - 3 weeks (under 1 month), such as the Nordic Common Studies and Nordic Baltic Express. The minimum duration of express mobility is 5 days of study. Express mobility is intended to broaden the possibilities for students to study abroad for shorter periods in cases where longer periods are not possible. This mobility scheme is also intended to encourage and to facilitate institutions to invite students from partner institutions to take part in their ordinary courses and thus promote internationalisation at home. 

This type of grant is offered to bachelor and master level students (not PhD level students). Same rules apply to this type of mobility as long-term mobility.

 

WORK Placement

This type of mobility aims to support students in gaining work experience within their specialised field of study during their study time at the bachelor or the master level (not PhD). Minimum duration for work placements is 1 week. Same rules apply to this type of mobility as long-term mobility.

Students who intend to make work placement/internship abroad, e.g. via the Nordic Baltic Express programme, should fill out both the application form and a training agreement in collaboration with home school and receiving institution/partner.
