Accessible, affordable and innovative opportunities to study abroad

Are you looking for an international experience for your resume, a chance to work in an interdisciplinary and international workplace, or a program focusing on personal development? Then this might be for you!

What characterizes the OIO’s?

  • Interdisciplinary and intercultural
  • Various lengths (1 week to 3 months) and formats (physical, virtual, and anything in between)
  • Extra attention to accommodate students for whom studying abroad is otherwise limited (such as first-generation students, students with financial need or caring responsibilities, disabilities, and more)
  • Innovative programmes with social & environmental orientation
  • Accessible application process (no GPA) and scholarship opportunities

Information sessions & workshops
