We offer student exchange during term 5 of the programme. The University of Agder has student exchange agreements with several universities and colleges abroad. We offer student exchange through established mobility programmes such as Erasmus+ and Nordplus. Our university has both the ECTS label and the Diploma Supplement label.
A list of our options for studying abroad is found on the University’s site for student exchange. For further information, contact our advisor for student exchange Tone Frøysnes (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org@uia.no).
Students who have studied abroad are well equipped to take the courses PED237 “Characteristics of Norwegian and Comparative Education” or PED221 “International Issues in Inclusive Education” during term 6. By taking these courses after studying abroad, students have a good foundation for delving into comparative and international subjects in their bachelor’s thesis.
