MOBILITY & INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE Programmes

UAB Exchange Programme

The UAB Exchange Programme makes it possible for students enrolled at our university to spend a semester or an entire year at a foreign university that does not participate in the Erasmus+ program, as well as enabling subsequent recognition of the studies completed abroad.

The recognition of studies will be done following the Learning Agreement (study agreement) that the student will have agreed with the exchange coordinator of his center, before leaving.

Each course opens a joint call for the Erasmus+ programs and the UAB Exchange Program among UAB students. The decision to award destination places in the call does not necessarily imply the granting of financial aid, which will depend on the approval of the budgets for the programs for the different institutions involved.

The student pays the tuition fee at the home university and enjoys free tuition at the host institution (except in cases where otherwise specified), where they are entitled to the same services that local students receive, in equal footing. The host university must provide the necessary information about the courses offered, accommodation possibilities and registration procedures.

Carrying out the exchange at the host university will not imply the right to obtain the degree at that institution.

Electronic signature

To carry out procedures with the UAB it is necessary to have a digital certificate to be able to sign the documents by means of an electronic signature. Consult all the information on the digital signature page.
