NESU Excursion 2024 goes Bergen

The 2024 Excursion will be heading towards Bergen, Norway on 11.-16.9.2024

We warmly welcome you to participate if you are a business student in any Nordic university!

The application period is held in April 2024

The NESU Excursion is a trip to one Nordic country annually. The goal of the Excursion is to create networks between business students within the Nordics. The event is intended for all Nordic business students. We are gathering a group of approximately 70 students all over the Nordics. We want to enable the sharing of cultures and learning from others, both in business skills and in leisure. We strive to create a good start for continuous cooperation in the future.

The excursion participants and local students spend the excursion together doing various activities. The program on the excursion includes visits to and local and international companies and exploring the nature and culture of the destination country together. We are also planning joint evening programs with local business students. Those include casual hanging out and parties.

Application process

Application is made through an application form. It will be published in the linktree in @nesuexcursion Instagram bio and the Facebook event at the beginning of the application period. The application form asks for your basic information.

The participants are decided by drawing. We have quotas for each country to enable an international event. After the draw, we will contact selected applicants to confirm their application.

If selected participants do not confirm their participation by the given deadline, drawing is done again to fill the available spots. The draw will happen within the same country quota. This process is continued until all places are filled.

 

Cancellation and Reserve list

After the draw, we send out emails to selected participants. We ask everyone to confirm their participation. At this point, it is possible to cancel participation for free.

The reservation cost is not returned if a participant wants to cancel their participation after confirmation unless someone from the reserve list is available and willing to take the opening spot.

All cancellations have to be communicated with the organizing team. We will manage the reserve list and make sure all spots are filled.
