Your options

Stenden students can take subjects at more than 90 partner universities of applied sciences in countries ranging from Sweden to South-Korea. Many of these partners offer English-language education or classes in another language such as Spanish, French or German. This is the perfect opportunity for you to brush up on your language skills! Please check iStenden for information on how to apply and to see which destinations are open to applicants. iStenden is accessible to Stenden students and staff. 

You may also opt to spend a semester at one of Stenden’s international branches. This is what we call the Grand Tour, which may take you to South Africa, Qatar, Thailand or Bali.
