Student exchange to South Africa or Mozambique?

Now is your chance to go study in Pretoria, South Africa or Maputo, Mozambique!.This means that you take courses, or do a work experience (e.g. museum, excavations or in another organisation) for 3 months, with a stipend for living expenses and travel.

The credits may be included in your degree and will merit you for CSN. The Linnaeus-Palme exchange is primarily for master students, but is also open to  undergraduates.

We have two places left to Pretoria this term! If you go over the summer, you will not miss your courses here.
