The student should get in touch with the INTERNATIONALIZATION work group (WG), via e-mail [email protected] and express his willingness to study abroad. After this contact, the internationalization WG will give him the necessary information and will check the availability of vacancy at the University that the student would like to attend.
As UNINTER does not have a fixed date to offer exchange vacancy, the student should pay attention to the Public Notices which are published in the site of the INTERNATIONALIZATION department.
- Verify whether the partner institutions, in the country of interest, offer your course or similar ones
- Make sure you are a passport holder up to the closing of the period of application, with validity of up to six months after the approximate end of the exchange programme or arrange this document before the end of the application period
- Fill ALL the fields of the application form
- It is very important to pay attention to the deadlines of the exchange programmes.
Before confirming your application, make sure you meet the criteria established in the Public Notices related to the selection for the Exchange Programme.
- Fill the Application Form, indicating three alternatives of partner universities as well as the period in which you intend to go on the exchange programme.
- Send the Application Form, correctly filled, to the e-mail [email protected]
- The Internationalization WG checks, among the three alternatives indicated, which university has the vacancy for the selected period
- All the students enrolled will go through both selection processes: from UNINTER and from the partner institution, but the final decision about the acceptance of the student will be on the part of the partner institution, upon presentation of the required documents. Therefore, just the filling of the Application Form does not guarantee your vacancy in the exchange programme.
In order to take better advantage regarding the academic and personal aspects, the applicant to the academic exchange should be prepared to study and to be able to communicate using the language of the country, that is to say, the student should have fluency in reading, writing, listening and speaking. Some partner institutions require certificates to prove fluency in the language of the country, such as the TOEFL or the IELTS. Check with the partner university the specific requirements in relation to this subject.
Selecting the courses to be taken abroad
In order to select the disciplines to be attended during the Exchange period, the student should require assistance from the course coordinator and, together, they should check the ones that are missing so that the student may finish the course. Then, they should compare the missing ones to the ones offered by the partner university, according to the syllabus of the intended course abroad. Should there be any doubt concerning the courses offered abroad, the coordinator can require assistance to the Internationalization WG, which will get in touch with the partner institution abroad and search for the pertinent information regarding syllabi and course plans. After the coordinator and the student analyse both courses, the one offered by UNINTER and the one offered by the partner institution, the disciplines to be taken will be selected and should be written clearly in the application form.
