Pitch about the exchange work
Here you can find topics about the exchange work at OsloMet to talk about with international guests.
- How familiar are you with OsloMet? Are there specific topics you would like to know more about?
Outbound student exchange
- Bachelor's and master's level (our PhD students also travel abroad, but this is still a less structured process – we are working to improve this with our R&D department - how is this organised at your institution?)
- Many students travel abroad for practical training – often shorter stays.
- Largest group go to Europe, USA, Australia, SA – unfortunately not the same countries as our international students come from.
- Numbers too low: Measures taken - Increased focus on the design of study programmes and how mobility windows are integrated into the programme.
- Also: increased focus on internationalisation at home.
- Certificate of International Learning - CIL.
