Education Collaborations

Through cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary education collaborations, we aim to develop new joint study programs based on courses and education resources from two or more of our universities. These study programs will be established around our prioritized focus areas where we have unique competencies.

In accordance with the Bologna process, we will explore possibilities for student exchange semesters between our universities in these programs. Students participating in these joint programs and exchanges will benefit from the expertise provided by each of the universities involved, and graduate with international experience, skills and know-how suited for Arctic needs.

Focus Areas

Arctic Five collaborations are developed within the key focus areas of Energy, Health and Well-being, Mining, Regional development, Teacher education, and issues relating to the Sápmi / Indigenous people.
