International Office

International Office is for all exchange students and teachers. The job of the International Office is to help students and teachers to be mobile and advise on different possibilities.

We are responsible for the mobility agreements and cooperation with our partner universities abroad. The International Office administers and coordinates several international programmes and projects. We administer grants mostly for outgoing students and staff.

If you are interested in studying in a Master's Degree Programme please check this website.
