For music performance, European institutions, as a rule, are members of the European Association of Conservatoires (AEC). For dance performance, we have partner institutions in Portugal, the Netherlands and Nordic countries among others. Contact your local exchange coordinator for more information on how to apply. We do offer a few theoretical courses in music and dance subjects, but in general exchange students are required to undergo an audition or send in a CD/DVD for documentation of skills.

University of Stavanger


The University of Stavanger is situated on Norway’s south-west coast, surrounded by magnificent and diverse landscapes. The charming harbour city of Stavanger ranks as Norway’s fourth largest with approximately 130,000 inhabitants and is known as Norway’s “oil and energy capital”. The Stavanger region is Norway’s most productive area and has been the national hub for innovative industry for several decades, partly owing to the petroleum industry and partly to a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship which existed long before the oil age.
