Exchange Students

An exchange student can be defined as a student doing a limited period of study or training abroad (in the framework of ongoing studies at the home institution).

It definitely increases your linguistic and social skills and well as your maturity, confidance and self-esteem.

Having an International experience has a positive impact in your future career and it’s a mind opened for an increasingly global world.

Some advantages of an exchange period:

  • Linguistic skills development
  • Knowledge of new cultures;
  • Personal growth.

Incoming Students

To do an exchange you must be following studies at one of our partner institutions under the umbrella of an Inter-Institutional agreement (Erasmus +) or of a Cooperation Protocol.

You will need to apply through your own Higher Education Institution irrespective of the kind of mobility activity you are interested in. The International Office of your Institution will be able to inform you about the conditions to participate, details of the selection criteria and documents needed. Under no circumstances is it possible to do a partial period of study as a free mover, that is, outside the framework of an existing program or protocol.
