Internasjonale sommerkurs hos våre partneruniversitet!

Kunne du tenkt deg å benytte sommeren på å studere spennende fag hos noen av våre internasjonale partnerinstitusjoner?


Det matematisk-naturvitenskapelige fakultet ønsker å informere våre studenter om muligheten til å søke seg til sommerkurs ved noen av våre internasjonale partneruniversitet. Her vil du få opplevelsen ved å studere i et annet land og møte et internasjonalt studiemiljø over et par uker i løpet av sommermånedene juni til august. Lengden på sommerkursene kan variere hos de ulike partner-universitetene, men ofte varer disse mellom 2 - 4 uker. 

Studenter som søker seg til internasjonale sommerkurs, gjør dette utenom studieplanen sin ved UiB og studenten står selv for den økonomiske finansieringen av oppholdet. Noen sommerkurs gir studiepoeng (ECTS) som kan søkes innpasset i graden ved UiB, dersom man har valgfrie emner i studieplanen. 

Tilgjengelige sommerkurs vil bli lagt ut her fortløpende. 
Andre tilsvarende kurs som går i sommermånedene vil også bli publisert her. 


Waseda Summer Session 2023

Dear Valued Partners,

Warm greetings from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our Waseda Summer Session 2023.

We started a four-weeks summer session in 2014. In 2019, we welcomed about 160 international students from 83 universities in 22 different countries and regions around the world. The session is open to international students as well as Waseda students.

We had to cancel the summer session for three years due to the pandemic of COVID-19, yet in 2023, we decided to hold Waseda Summer Session 2023 after thorough measures against the infection.

Participants will choose 2 from 14 courses such as literature and art, business, culture, economics, history, politics and sociology in the context of Japan and Asia pacific, and can earn 4 credits. The classes are taught in English by the experienced faculty members. We will also organize extracurricular activities such as field trips, site visits and cultural events to experience Tokyo and Japan!

◆Online Application: March 1 , 2023 to March 24 , 2023

◆Duration & Dates: 4 weeks from June 19, 2023 to July 12 , 2023

OBS! Eventuelt interesserte studenter må sende e-post til utveksling@uib.no og gi beskjed dersom du tenker å søke.

Dear Partners,

Greeting from Hokkaido University, Japan!

We are glad to inform you that Hokkaido Summer Institute (HSI) 2023 information is now available on the website. More than 160 world-leading researchers from overseas will provide lectures with the university’s faculty members for five months during the summer for the HSI, which was established in 2016 and more than 1,100 international students have participated so far. From 2020, we also accept applications from non-students.

There will be 349 courses (250 graduate courses and 99 undergraduate courses) from June 1st to October 31st, 2023. Each course conducted in English is worth 1 academic credit. Most of the courses run for one or two weeks. Students can tailor their own summer program by combining courses according to their major and interests. Many courses have an option of online format.

In 2023, HSI will offer more Japanese language/culture courses. There will be five levels of Japanese language courses from introductory to pre-intermediate which enable students to find the course that suits their levels. Topics that Japanese culture courses discuss include politic, economy, school education and more.

Tuition fee will be waived for students who enroll in the program as exchange students from HU’s partner institutions with which HU has concluded a memorandum of understanding on mutual tuition waivers (except for HSI Extension/Professional Program in Japanese courses). All students from the partner institutions can take this tuition waiver and the number of HSI students is not included in the exchange quota.

Kindly be noted that HSI2023 will be the last year that this tuition waiver scheme will apply to students from partner universities. We hope many students will take advantage of this last opportunity this summer.

We would be grateful if you could share our websites and the attached posters with prospective applicants.
