About the agreement
The agreement covers courses at the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry, and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine*. It is however also possible to take courses at some other faculties. Please note: exchange students are required to choose the majority of their courses from one faculty, closest to their educational background. Exchange students need to have sufficient prior academic
background in the disciplines taught at the receiving Faculty. Within one faculty, they can choose courses from several study programmes. One of the study programmes will be chosen as the host study programme for the student. Students are welcome to choose some courses from other faculties, as well, if they meet the requirements for the courses. Please note that some faculties/study programmes offer courses in English
mainly on Master’s level (suitable for advanced Bachelor students as well)
* The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is the only place in Finland which offers veterinary education. Subjects here are mostly only given in Finnish, but it is possible for foreign students to apply for a clinical work experience, for which supervision can be given in English.
Who can apply
For all Erasmus and agreements it is necessary to have attained 60 credits on your current NMBU program before commencing on an exchange study abroad.
Number of study places
Erasmus: Two places for one year eac (or one semester).
