North2north Partner Institutions

Students from KAMK can go on exchange to the n2n programme’s partner universities. Exceptions are North American educational institutions, as each participating university is only granted a few exchange places per year with semester waivers for North American institutions. In practice, this means that North American exchange destinations will change every year. You can find more information about this programme on the North2north programme’s website.
