studying abroad

Lapland UAS students have the possibility of completing part of their studies abroad in one of the Lapland UAS’ partner universities. Some of the Lapland UAS’ partner universities and exchange programs are field-specific, thus they are only for students of certain study field. Lapland UAS has an agreement with the partner universities that defines the number of exchange students for each semester. International students of Lapland UAS are able to apply to go abroad on study exchange in the Erasmus program. Lapland UAS admits grants also for free mover exchange (study exchanges that are completed at universities that are not Lapland UAS partner universities). Precondition for Lapland UAS travel grant for free mover exchange is that student has a Finnish citizenship or permanent residence permit and a permission for the exchange from the head of degree programme. On this page there is a list of all Lapland UAS’ exchange programs. For more detailed information, please see the links below.

You should start preparing for the exchange in good time in advance. For student it is important to know that the exchange grant does not cover all the expenses of the exchange. Students must be prepared to finance themselves their exchange period.
