For universities

This section is intended for higher education institutions interested in developing a joint Master programme together with their Nordic partner universities.

What is a Nordic Master programme?

Nordic Master is a Nordic Council of Ministers’ programme that offers funding to Master’s level joint programmes. The NMP supports Nordic Master programmes and their students’ international mobility in those higher education institutions that participate in the programme.

A prerequisite for funding is that the consortium consists of higher education institutions from at least three different Nordic countries. The goal of the Nordic Master is to further Nordic higher education, strengthen the Nordic area’s competitiveness and to attract students from all over the world.

How to apply for funding?

The latest Call for proposals for the Nordic Master programme was open between 30 April 2018 and 31 October 2018. The programme is provisioned to have yearly Calls for proposals. Please see the “To the applicant” page for further details on the application requirements and related procedures.
