We highly recommend all our students to participate in our student excahange programs! Studying in abroad is an enriching experience both academically and personally. It gives you a wider perspective of the field you are studying, develops your intercultural communication skills and brings you lifetime international friendships and contacts. It also offers an excellent opportunity to gain international experience which is highly respected by employers.
The length of student exchange period is one or two study semester, one semester usually lasting 3 to 6 months depending on the host institutions' academic calendar. The recommended timing for exchange period is the second or third year of your studies.
