Exchange studies

We would like to welcome students from partner universities to a study period at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL).

HVL is a merger of these three former institutions: Bergen University College, Sogn og Fjordane University College and Stord/Haugesund University College.

We have five campuses on the West Coast of Norway, located in Bergen, Førde, Haugesund, Sogndal and Stord.

In 2017, you have to apply to the campus listed in the original agreement with your home institution. You can apply for a study period at one campus only.

The deadlines for applying to HVL are:

18 April for the autumn semester (August - December)
15 October for the spring semester (January - June)

Note! You have to be nominated by your home university in order to apply for exchange through our online system.
