How to apply

Requirements for going on exchange

  • You must have 60 study points before you go abroad.
  • You have to be registered for the semester and have paid your semester fee to NMBU.
  • The exchange must last at least three months, but it is recommended to be away for one or two semesters.
  • Your study plan while abroad must be approved as part of your degree at NMBU. You must get pre-approval of the proposed study program by your faculty before going on exchange.
  • NMBU recommends a minimum average of C to apply for exchange. Contact SiT (Student Information Centre) at NMBU if you have any doubts. 


The application process

  1. Submit the form application for exchange by the given deadline.
  2. Processing time is approx. four weeks. You will receive the response regarding which university you are nominated for by e-mail.
  3. You must apply to the host university within their local deadlines.
  4. Pre-approval of courses must be sought from the study advisor in your faculty. Erasmus students must use the Learning Agreement to apply for pre-approval of courses. The application form for pre-approval for everybody else is available under forms and templates.
  5. Remember semester registration and payment of the semester fee to NMBU while on exchange.

Regardless of whether you are travelling through an exchange program like Erasmus+ or not: Make sure to start the process early!
