An exchange student/staff is registered/employed at a university (home university) and temporarily studies/researches at a partner university (host university). The exchange period for students lasts from 1 semester to max. 10 months. The exchange period for staff members is 1 month. Students do not obtain a diploma from the host institution. However, all academic results will be sent to the students' home university and will be recognized by using the two forms of academic recognition:

  • Learning Agreement (developed following acceptance of scholarship)
  • Transcript of Records (issued after completion of exchange period)

Possible types of mobility for exchange students:

  • Undergraduate: 1 semester or 1 academic year (maximum of 10 months)
  • Master: 1 semester or 1 academic year (maximum of 10 months)
  • Doctorate: 6 months – 20 months
  • Post-doctorate: 6 - 10 months
  • Staff: 1 month

Degree students will obtain a diploma from the host university in the EU or Candidate country. Students applying as degree students need to comply with the Host University entry requirements. The admission criteria are detailed under each course description at the point of application.
