Exchange Agreements for Student Mobility

Exchange agreements form the necessary basis for student exchanges (semester exchanges). These can be concluded on a university-, faculty- or an institute-level, or within a single subject, with the corresponding entity at a partner university. Relevant criteria for concluding a new exchange agreement:

  • Good academic standing
  • Agreement must be in the interest of both parties (taking into account students' interest in partner university)
  • Agreement should facilitate a regional expansion of the range of exchange opportunities 

Exchange agreements are appropriate when based on the assumption of reciprocal interest in the respective universities' study-programs on the part of the students. Global Student Experience supports institutes and faculties that are interested in establishing, expanding and/or modifying their student-exchange opportunities.

Exchange Agreements within Europe (Erasmus, spec. SEMP)

Exchange Agreements Outside of Europe

Other Forms of Cooperation

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is sufficient for other forms of cooperation that do not envisage student-exchange (for example research-cooperation, collaborative development of teaching- and continuing education programs etc.). Further forms of cooperation (including Cotutelle de These, double- or joint-degree programs etc.) require specific types of agreemements.
