How to enrol to courses
To take part in the Nordic Mining School collaboration as a student, you first need to be enrolled as a regular student at either Luleå University of Technology or University of Oulu. NMS gives you the opportunity to complete your educational profile with single courses from the other university, or spend an exchange semester there. There are also possibilities for conducting jointly supervised thesis work and completing a NMS double degree. For further information, please contact the NMS coordinator at your university. For contact details see under “Contact”.
Students who wish to spend an exchange semester at the other university as part of the Nordic Mining School collaboration can under some circumstances obtain financial support for the exchange. For this, the student should contact the International Office at their home university. The coordinators of the programme can also be of assistance with practical issues (see Contacts).
The best way is to travel between Oulu and Luleå is by bus/train or car. The distance is roughly 260km and the travel time is approximately 3hrs by car.
