Nordplus finances intensive courses (minimum 5 days) held during the semester periods or in the summer period. Course participants must represent at least three Nordic countries. The course must give academic credit (ECTS), and be eligible for academic credit transfer. Funding includes student mobility grants.

Curriculum development
Nordplus also supports curriculum development projects i.e. for developing short (intensive) courses, common study material, and distance learning concepts.

Funding scheme. There are two options:

  1. If the course is supported by Nordplus, home university covers the travelling costs. All other expenses (hostel, meals, materials, etc) are covered by the organising University.
  2. In case the course is a BOVA course, students are entitled for a scholarship and they bear all the costs themselves.

In both cases students have to contact their Nordplus/BOVA coordinators at their home University.
