Questions and answers 

 

What is the procedure of application?

See “Application and admission” page for details of the application process.

Where do I send my application for the programme?
See “Application and admission” page for details of the application process  
Which is the deadline for the 2011 intake?
The deadline for application is 15 January 2011.
What are the eligibility criteria for admission?
See “Application and admission” page for details of the criteria for eligibility.
Are there any scholarships available for students in the ISEE programme?
There may be a limited number of scholarships available for students in the ISEE programme.

In Sweden, the Swedish Institute grants hundreds of scholarships every year. The number available varies from year to year, and competition is keen. The Global Grant website provides information about other scholarships. However, most foreign students in Sweden fund their stays without scholarships.

Are there any tuition fees for students in the ISEE programme?

 Beginning with the autumn semester 2011, Sweden will be introducing application and tuition fees for some international students who apply for courses and programmes at universities and university colleges. For more information please consult the following webpage:  https://www.studera.nu.

 There will also be a charge for students from outside EU/EEA if they choose to take a degree in Denmark. The tuition fee is on the order of €5000 per semester but is not applying to students that are only taking one semester in Denmark. These rules are due to the current legislation in the different countries and may be subject for change in the future.

In Iceland there is a study fee on the order of €300 annually. Also, there may be minor compulsory fees to the student union(s) and fees for insurances.

Students are encouraged to seek information on their own for updated information on fees and insurances that is valid to the universities they will spend time.

I'd like to know some more about the contents of the education: which courses are given at KTH the first semester for the class starting in 2010?
See “Programme overview” for range of courses at the participating institutes.
Who am I to talk to at DTU regarding the specialisation within Wind Energy?
See “Partner universities” for contact details.
Is the “specialization semester” the second or the third term?
Specialisation courses are taken the second and the third term.
Am I allowed to apply to several master programmes at the same time?
Yes, but if you apply to several programmes through www.studera.nu you will have to prioritise between them.
I am concerned about my grades. What would be my chances to get accepted to the programme if my grades are not top level?
The selection process for the ISEE programme is based on a total evaluation of the following selection criteria: university, GPA, course work related to the programme, thesis proposal, relevant working experiences and references. It is thus not easy to give a direct answer but rather you should feel encouraged to apply if you expect to be able to follow to courses in the programme.
How long will the Nordic universities be offering the Nordic Master programme?
The range of courses and master programmes are due to change on a regular basis. Some courses and programmes are only offered for a few years while others have been around for many years. It is thus impossible to know how long this programme will be active.
By the way, could you explain about job opportunities in Innovative and Sustainable Energy Engineering?
The energy field is an international and dynamic area where well-trained engineers are in demand, particularly for engineers exposed to practices in the Nordic countries. Employment opportunities are expected to be strong, as shown by the experience gained from related programmes, as the Sustainable Energy Engineering programme and other programmes at the participating universities.

Do I need a visa?
Nationals in the majority of countries outside the EU require a visa to visit the Nordic countries. As the first semester of the program is in Sweden, turn to the Swedish Migration Board for further information about your stay.

For the following semesters it is important that special rules in the different Nordic nations are followed. See the following links for information about the rules in Finland and in Iceland.

How do I arrange my accommodation?
There is no general system in charge of student accommodation, and Master students are responsible for finding their own lodgings. Availability of rooms and flats varies from one place to another. Unfortunately, the number of students often exceeds the number of rooms than higher education institution has to offer. Before arriving to Sweden, you should allow plenty of time to make all the necessary arrangements. You can start by contacting the Student Union at KTH.
