ABOUT THE nordic common studies

The Nordic Common studies programme (NCS) will be offered for the 7th time in February 2019. In this activity the network chooses a slot in the academic year, where schools swop their students and experiment with teaching and sharing of methods and experiences in an international context.

This project is a tool towards internationalising the curricula of theatre and performing arts education. The ambition is that step by step our education becomes more flexible so that students can become more mobile and enjoy express mobility and networking on a high level.
