• Practical Information for Mobile Students
Many international exchange students choose to follow the host school’s clinical rotations, obtaining valuable, mandatory experience in the treatment of animals. An outline of the clinical rotations on offer in English at NVH can be found here: Master students may also spend time taking courses or carrying out research and thesis work abroad.
Incoming students should get in touch with their own school’s international office first and start the process there. “The Handbook for international exchange” is available online – see below.
Outgoing students can find the information they need by attending information meetings at NVH and by reading the “Handbook for international exchange” and the booklet “Ut I verden” – both documents can be downloaded from NVHs Quality System/kvalitetssystemet at www.nvh.no
