The Nordic Master funding scheme is initiated by the Nordic Council of Ministers to promote higher education in the Nordic Region by attracting talented students from worldwide to the region.

In 2015 four master programmes will be supported. Two programmes are thematically predefined. The predefined themes are Welfare and Green Growth. The themes should be interpreted widely and they are not linked to certain subject areas.

Nordic universities are now invited to submit their proposals. The application should be submitted through the electronic application and reporting system Espresso. Please, try to finish your application well in advance as the Espresso system might be overloaded during last days of the call.

Centre for International Mobility CIMO in Finland is responsible for the administration of Nordic Master on behalf of the Nordic Council of Ministers.

An information session as a webinar was organised in the beginning of summer. The session was recorded and the recording can be found here
