As a PhD student at USN, you have the opportunity to take part of your PhD abroad with one of our international partners. The period abroad must be of professional relevance, and ideally, you should use the network with which your research group has an established cooperation.
International mobility will often require some extra work, and it will not always be easy to find the appropriate time. Still, it will afford perspectives, networks and experiences you do not obtain at home, and of course increased language skills. Additionally, you will be able to add new impulses to the academic environment at USN. A research stay abroad will primarily help establish and further develop international research cooperation, and it will give new impetus to the work of the dissertation. It is therefore important that the visiting institution and the current research community are chosen carefully, and in cooperation with the supervisor. Currently, USN are developing good exchange arrangements with relevant agreements for the PhD programs at all faculties.
Some of USN's PhD students choose to go to institutions the university does not have an agreement with. If you choose to do so, you are responsible for all the preparation of the stay. The program administrator for your PhD program must approve it.
For further questions regarding exchange from USN, please contact the International Relations Section.
