UNIC promotes green mobility

To set positive examples, UNIC will offer a Train Instead of Plane (TIP) grant scheme for students who commit to travelling by train (for distances over 350km). UNIC provide 15 grants per year for students who commit to traveling by train to take part in exchanges, seminars or other credit-awarding activities and other activities enabling networking between UNIC students.

By traveling by train instead of plane, you are not only helping the environment, you also get the opportunity to visit other countries and cities on the way!

The TIP Scheme will involve grants of €185 which equals the costs of an Interrail ticket for 3 days per month. Grant applications will first be selected (to see whether the train offers a sustainable alternative and fits the >350km rule) and then awarded in a lottery.

Next round grant applications will open in autumn 2022. Follow this page to get the updated application information. 

Virtual mobility

UNIC Opened Courses

How about supplementing your studies with a course you cannot find in Oulu? As a student at the University of Oulu, you can choose virtual courses from the UNIC partner universities and include them in your degree. All courses are completely virtual and taught in English. 

Remember to check with your faculty that your chosen courses can be included in your degree in Oulu.
