Exchange destinations are in Australia, Japan, China, India, Mexico, Argentina, Switzerland and Republic of Korea. 

Who can apply?

All Lapland UAS' Degree Programme students have a possibility to apply for a bilateral study exchange. It is important to notice that bilateral agreements are mainly study field specific or some bilateral partner universities offer courses only for a specific study field, thus we can only send there specific study field students.
