Agreements for Student Exchange and Co-operation in Education

This page aims to provide an overview of agreements for student exchange and co-operation in education between SANORD member institutions in Nordic countries and southern African region. Here we list the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and Student Exchange Agreements (SEA) between the Nordic universities and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) universities.

Student Exchange Agreements (SEAs) are only meant for Undergraduate and Graduate (Master) students. However, exceptions of admitting PhD students on SEAs are possible at some of the member institutions. These SEAs are university-wide agreements and the duration of the exchange ranges from 1 to 2 semesters.

Students are advised to check the university websites for each agreement and contact each university’s International Office for the most current information, especially information such as number of study places available per term and the deadline for submitting applications.
The updated information should be available on each university´s website.

Dear all friends of the SANORD community. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation the SANORD board has decided to hold the entire conference on a digital platform. The programme will be restructured and shortened, but we will keep the same dates 7- 10 September 2021.

Information about participant fee and registration will be announced during February 2021.

If you have handed in an abstract for the 2020 conference, you can choose to keep this for the 2021 digital conference or submit a new abstract. The new submission deadline is 1 May 2021.

sincerely,
SANORD conference Committee
