For students and teachers

Individual students and teachers who would like to participate in a FIRST+ exchange from Finland to Russia should apply for an exchange place through their own institutions.

The sending higher education institution selects the students and teachers going on exchanges, but the host institutions has the right to make the final decision on accepting candidates. The FIRST+ network will provide a grant for participating students and teachers.

Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD level students in all fields may take part in student exchanges. However, students majoring in the Russian language are not allowed to select their major subject for their studies during the exchange. The duration of the exchange is 2–12 months. The studies completed during the exchange will be included in the student's degree. Notuition feeswill be charged to the students.

For more information, contact the international affairs unit of your higher education institution.
