The nomination of exchange students is the first step for students from exchange partner institutions wishing to spend a semester or year at USN. The nomination process is designed to ensure that all exchange students will have a rewarding experience in Norway based on academic interests, goals and preparation.

Nominations must be submitted by the exchange coordinator/education abroad advisor at the sending institution on behalf of each student seeking an exchange placement.

PLEASE NOTE: Nomination for spring semester 2018 opens September 1. USN is introducing an online nomination system which will be available to all partners from autumn 2017 onwards.

Only students nominated through our online system will be processed for the online application for spring 2018. Nominations sent by e-mail will not be accepted.


Nominations for fall semester and academic year applicants (August start date): April 1 
  • Nominations for spring and alternate academic year applicants (January start date): October 1

All partners will receive an e-mail on nomination procedures during September. Please contact for further questions or if your institution has not received the information.
