Applying for study track

NordSecMob is a joint Master's programme organised in cooperation by five universities. To complete the programme and graduate with double degree, students must study at two of the consortium universities, refered to as home and host university, together forming a study track.

The home and host universities are defined already during the application and selection process. Applicants must specify which study track they wish to follow (in order of priority) on the application form. The NordSecMob selection committee allocates the study tracks to the students based on their preferences and on availability of seats at each university.

Applicants cannot be rejected because of study track choice, but the allocated study track cannot be changed later on, so choose your study track wishes carefully.

See Study Programme for further information about the study track options.
