The subjects available to exchange students are:

  • third year subjects for bachelor students
  • first year subjects for master students (NB! except pedagogy)

You can find the curricula here

Please note:

  • Exchange students who spend only one semester at RDAM can only complete half the number of ECTS points for full year subjects. (If, for example, Principal study is 30 ECTS for a full year, exchange students can complete 15 ECTS per semester.)
  • Certain subjects are only available in either the autumn or spring semester.
  • You are required to take exams to pass certain subjects regardless of whether your home institution requires examination.

The curricula can be subject to change, and all questions regarding the Learning Agreement should be directed to the relevant Head of Studies.

Transcript of Records 

The Transcript of Records will automatically be issued and send directly to the student's home institution after the exchange has ended. The transcript forms the basis for the final credit transfer to the home institution.
