NMBU has over 150 exchange agreements with partner institutions from all over the world. Students currently studying at one of NMBU's international partner institutions may apply to become exchange students for one or two semesters.

The application procedures depend on the type of your exchange agreement, eg. if you are traveling through Erasmus+, a bilateral agreement or the NORHED program. Unfortunately NMBU does not accept applications from Bachelor or Master students from non-partner universities (free movers).
