Exchange Pro­grammes

The Norwegian Academy of Music is proud to be the home away from home to visiting and international students from over 40 countries.

The Academy participates in several exchange and mobility programmes, including Erasmus+ and Nordplus. These programmes offer the opportunity for students to study at the Academy for one or two semesters while earning credits in the programme at their home institution.

As an exchange student, studying at the Academy is also possible through bilateral agreements with institutions not participating in these programmes.

If you are interested in studying at the Norwegian Academy of Music as an exchange student, please first contact the international coordinator/office at your home institution.
