Timing

The students of the program study together at each university and move between universities as a group. The students start their 120 credit points program in the fall. After their first semester, they move to the second university where they spend the spring semester and finally they move on to the last university for their third semester. The student will spend his/her final semester at one of the three Partner Universities or outside organizations such as industry, government agencies or other university laboratories.

The reunion (and diploma presentation) takes place at a different partner every year. Alumni, industry and academic partners as well as the new students starting at that particular university are invited.

Moving to and living in the partner cities

All partner universities advise and assist students in moving between countries and living in the different cities. Each partner university will do its utmost to provide housing for every student in the program. Students stay in university accommodation in single or double rooms. They will register for the accommodation themselves.

Visas/Residence permits

Obtaining the necessary visa lies in the responsibility of the admitted student. The universities you will attend will inform you about applying for visa or residence permit.

Health and other insurances

Students need to organize health insurance which is valid in all three countries and also covers visits to mines at industrial sites as well as traveling from one country to another.
