The students are responsible for their travel costs, accommodation and other expenses. The north2north programme provides participants with a mobility grant, the amount of which varies annually.
Host institutions North America charge tuition fees from exchange students. The University of Eastern Finland is allocated some placements with tuition fee waivers to North America on an annual basis, and these placements will be opened for applications during our application periods.
Students are also able to apply for tuition-based exchange, but they will then be responsible for paying the tuition fees according to the host university.
Host universities in the Nordics (Sweden, Norway, Iceland) do not charge tuition fees from exchange students. Danish host institutions (Denmark, Greenland, Faroe Islands) charge tuition fees from n2n exchange students unless there is a bilateral agreement between home and host institution.
NB! The north2north network has new members in the United Kingdom: however, these host institutions have not confirmed if they will charge tuition fees from exchange students, and it is not confirmed if students are eligible for north2north funding for these institutions.
