The Set-up

Hit play to get a sense of the atmosphere at NSAC

The day begins with registration followed by a networking-breakfast, after which the conference is commenced by a welcoming speech by our president and vice president as well as our preferred partner, PwC. The conference consists of various elements, each uniquely designed to make for a well-balanced, exciting and informational experience for our participants. First and foremost are the university presentations, where representatives from the world’s finest educational institutions address the two driving questions behind NSAC Conference: Why should you study abroad? How do you study abroad?

Furthermore, the conference includes unique panel discussions that make for a dynamic addition to the programme. Between these presentations and panels, motivational speakers share their personal stories e.g. on how they funded their world-class education or how studying abroad changed and formed their lives. Throughout the conference there will be networking sessions which provide the participating students with the unique opportunity to interact directly with the speakers as well as hand-picked student experts, and ask any question they may have.

Date and Venue


Nordic Study Abroad Conference 2017 will take place on Saturday September 23rd at the Danish premises of our primary sponsor, PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The scholarship will be given to a motivated student with a track record proving both ambition and aspiration, and will be announced at the NSAC Conference on September 23rd.

We are happy to have this close partnership with PwC and we highly encourage you to apply!

The Buddy Program

One of our goals at NSAC is to make the conference as accessible as possible for Nordic students to attend. Due to the fact that many of our participating students live far from Copenhagen, e.g. Jutland, Sweden, or Norway, and therefore have a longer to travel, we have established the Buddy Program. This program provides those of our participating students who live in the Copenhagen area, the Hosting Buddy, an opportunity to lend a couch or a room free of charge to a participating student travelling from far away or overseas, the Guesting Buddy. If you are interested in signing up for this program as a Hosting or Guesting Buddy please indicate this in your application. We do our best to accommodate everyone, however, please note that there is no guarantees when signing up for the Buddy Program, as its success depends on the number of participating students signing up for the program. We aim to inform you whether your application to the Buddy Program has been successful approximately 1-2 weeks before the conference.
