Is it a requirement to include student mobility in the projects?

Student mobility through academic partnerships is a core element in NORPART, with emphasis on the mobility of students from partner countries to Norway. The focus of the projects shall be on the Master level. PhD and Bachelor level activities may also be included, but cannot be funded by the programme.The purpose of the mobility may be participation in teaching (courses), supervision, fieldwork, research activities etc. Student work placements relevant to the academic programmes may also be supported. To meet the programme objective of increasing the mobility of students from developing countries to Norway, the number of students coming to Norway must be considerable. The number of mobile students to and from Norway does not have to be balanced and the purpose and length of the mobility stays may differ between the partner institutions.

For how long can students go abroad?

Student mobility stays of 3-12 months duration at the Master level and 3-18 months at the PhD level. Stays of less than three months may also be covered in relation to other project activities. Student work placements relevant to the academic programmes may also be supported.

Does NORPART fund student mobility on Bachelor level?

No. Activities at Bachelor level may be included in the projects, but student mobility at Bachelor level cannot be funded by NORPART. However, Bachelor students may travel with other funding, such as from the State Educational Loan Fund or Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility.

Application deadline

31 May 2018, at 15:00 Norwegian time (CEST). All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the application process, tentatively in November 2018.
