Exchange possibilities within marine education in the North Atlantic

Network for North Atlantic Marine Science and Education

The Network for North Atlantic Marine Science and Education is an initiative funded by Nordplus/Nordic Council of Ministers, aimed at expanding collaboration within marine science in the North Atlantic and the Arctic and developing new joint education initiatives – based on the strengths, competencies, facilities and future needs of the partner institutions.

The focus is on both BSc and MSc education within marine science, including

  • oceanography
  • fisheries science
  • aquaculture.

The aim is to allow students in the involved study programs easy access to relevant courses at the partner institutions.

What does the network offer you?

  • Exchange grants for intensive courses, allowing easy access to advanced courses of a few weeks duration.
  • Exchange between the individual programs in the network, so you can have an entire semester with relevant courses in your field of interest.
  • Joint supervision of student projects (such as the master thesis) to make use of the best researchers and facilities in the network.
  • An opportunity to network with students from other North Atlantic educational institutions.


If you want to learn more about North Atlantic marine education exchange possibilities, please contact your local study administration.
