Information about West Nordic Studies Nordplus Mobility Grant

The Joint Nordic Master in West Nordic Studies, Governance and Sustainable Management has established a Nordplus network with the purpose of supporting West Nordic Studies students and teachers with mobility grants to participate in the annual Introductory Course in Akureyri as well as one or two semester exhanges. Below are lists of rates for the two types of mobility. Support for mobility is allocated according to an agreement between the five universities.

All students and teachers should apply for mobility funding by filling out one of these documents (for students or for teachers) and sending it to The University of the Faroe Islands, which will transfer the money after positive review of the application.
