Nordic Master programme

The Nordic Master programme offers funding to joint Nordic programmes at Master’s level. This initiative of the Nordic Council of Ministers supports both the Master’s programmes themselves and their students’ international mobility in participating institutions of higher education. CIMO acts as the programme administrator.

The objectives of the programme are to

  • internationalise higher education in the Nordic Region through a collaboration of Nordic and non-Nordic students from Europe and beyond
  • develop and facilitate cooperation between higher education institutions (HEIs) in the Nordic Region through systematic attention to solving hindrances and challenges in organising joint programmes
  • offer support to joint Master’s programmes based on excellence and high quality
  • support joint programmes that are research-based and give good opportunities for graduates to careers in research as well as elsewhere in working life
  • develop collaboration between HEIs, industry and the labour market in the Nordic Region
  • reach good and measurable results in students’ learning outcomes (knowledge, competences, skills)
  • to help students and other participants to create useful networks.

A prerequisite for funding is that the consortium consists of higher education institutions from at least three different Nordic countries and/or their autonomous regions (The Faroe Islands, Greenland and The Åland Islands). Participating students may come from all over the world.
