Exchange to AHO

AHO's management has decided to cancel exchanges to and from educational institutions outside Europe in the spring semester of 2021.

Currently, there are many uncertainties associated with exchanges outside Europe, such as entry regulations, and the opportunity to return to Norway before the end of the semester if necessary. In addition, many partner universities around the world are unsure of what kind of teaching they will be able to offer. This is the reason why AHO has decided that ordinary exchanges outside Europe will not take place.

AHO's main priority is to provide students with predictability and a high-quality academic offer when they go on exchange. It is difficult to guarantee now, especially when it comes to exchanges outside Europe.

AHO understands that many will be very disappointed that the exchange cannot be carried out as planned. At the same time, we take very seriously the responsibility it entails to send students on exchange, and emphasize that the decision has been made with the students' best interests in mind.
