Study Abroad? – Master Project in Brazil, Japan or US

Funding available for selected students to do two (or one) semesters abroad for master thesis work from August 2018 – May 2019.

Funding through collaboration projects (2017–2019) between ROBIN at University of Oslo and partners in Brazil, Japan and US

Cover: Travel + monthly scholarship of NOK 6000

Requirement: 60 credits of courses should have been taken and passed by the end of the spring semester 2018.

Interested? Contact: Jim Tørresen, e-mail 

Apply by sending an e-mail with subject "COINMAC Application" to Jim Tørresen October 20 at the latest with (in English language):

  1. A cover letter indicating what topic, lab and country you would be most interested in for an exchange scholarship for doing a master project and why you are motivated for doing your master abroad
  2. CV
  3. Transcripts with grades from bachelor and master study (applicants should have grade average C or better on courses)

Topic for master project: It is most relevant with master projects related to/in the domain of one of our externally funded project, see here. Master students in the I-NOR program would have priority if similar qualifications.
