Programme administration


SIU is Norway’s national agency for international programmes and measures related to education.

Information and communication are keywords in almost all SIU activities. Through the website, prin­ ted materials, media contact and other communication channels we provide relevant information, in particular about internationalisation of higher education and education mobility.

We are commissioned by several national and international public organisations to manage programmes within educa­ tion, research and development coope­ ration. This includes programmes and agreements on behalf of the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research, the Norwegian Agency for Development Co­operation (Norad), the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Nor­ wegian Directorate for Education and Training.

International promotion SIU holds the national responsibility of promoting Norway as a venue for study and re­search. The website and various printed material are valuable tools in this work. Our promotional measures support the Norwegian institutions of higher edu­ cation in their international promotion.

Building competence SIU is a partner for Norwegian institu­ tions of higher education in internation­ ali­sation. Every year we host a number of seminars and conferences in order to contribute to networking and the exchange of experiences.

Consultancy Being a competence centre in internation­ alisation in higher education, SIU provi­ des advice, facilitates implementation of measures and advances knowledge about trends and developments in inter­ nationalisation.
