To Find Oneself Abroad

WITH Nordic centre

We have exchange programs, we have internships, but what is the next generation international experience among university students?

Background

Founded in 1995, Nordic Centre is a collaboration between 27 institutions in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, and is located at Fudan University in Shanghai, China.

The Nordic Centre serves as:

* A platform for initiating and developing research and educational programmes, conferences, and workshops of mutual interest to Nordic and Chinese scholars.

* A teaching institution for Chinese students and scholars who study the Nordic countries, and for Nordic students and scholars pursuing study of China.

* An organiser of programmes and courses for the Nordic business community in Shanghai.

As the world is changing, we want to explore the future possibilities of student mobility and international experience. What else is there than traditional student exchange and internships?

Problem

We have exchange programs, we have internships, but what is the next generation international experience among university students? What do the students value, which might be supported by new international activity? What are the students actually interested in other cultures, academic and work life aspects?

How might we support the experience as institutions to create long-term relationship between the student and their receiving location? How could the students become experts of their target location rather than just having a fun exchange?

How might the international experience actually work? What are the goals from student’s point of view and the different stakeholders?
