Where You Will Study

Established in 1947, the Queen Maud University College of Early Childhood Education aims to train future teachers by offering postgraduate courses on a variety of topics. The QMUC participates in numerous research projects regarding Early Childhood Education and Care, both locally and internationally. The school aims to expand their network of partner institutions and increase the number of student and staff exchanges. To this end Queen Maud University has partnered with the University of Washington College of Education to provide some students the opportunity to study in Norway.


Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships

As a participant of a university exchange, you pay an exchange fee equivalent to UW tuition (1.5 quarters of UW tuition for semester-long exchanges, and 3 quarters of UW tuition for academic year exchanges). Exchange fees are determined by UW residency status: in-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to in-state tuition, and out-of-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to out-of-state tuition. The exchange fee and IPE administrative fee are charged to your UW account and due by the UW tuition deadline for your term(s) of study abroad. You should also budget for additional expenses such as international airfare & transportation, books & course materials, visa & passport fees, study abroad insurance and personal expenses.

For the total estimated costs of this particular program, you may request a budget by filling out a Budget Request Form.

For more information about budgeting, financial aid, and scholarships for study abroad visit our page on Finances.


Application Process

Departmental Exchanges generally focus on a specific academic discipline and often restrict participation to students in that department.  Applications and student selection for Departmental Exchanges are managed by the UW academic department, but students participating in Departmental Exchanges work with the UW Study Abroad Office to complete the same pre-departure requirements as other UW study abroad students.

If you are interested in a Departmental Exchange, contact the department coordinator listed above for information, application instructions and deadlines.  

Most application deadlines occur 6-8 months in advance of an exchange start date, so contact your department early.
