Destinations Outside Europe


Academic Affairs coordinates exchanges with several bilateral partners, networks and programmes around the world. There are two application calls, one in October and one in January. Exchanges take place the following academic year.

There are different exchange destinations included in each application call. Part of the agreements are multidisciplinary and open to all students who find suitable courses in their course catalogues. Some agreements are restricted to only one Faculty or School and only their students are entitled to apply to those destinations. Visit the Applying website for more detailed information about the application deadlines, destinations and application process. Information about the grants can be found from the Grants website.

If the destination or exchange programme requires a TOEFL test, only those students selected as an exchange student from the University of Oulu will take the test.


In addition, your Faculty may have own exchange destinations outside Europe.  Please see the For You section below each continent’s website for more information about your Faculty/Degree Programme exchange destinations and guidelines.
