I would like to do part of my programme abroad.
Thanks to the exchange programme offered
at my university and the European ECTS system, my study programme
abroad will be counted
as an integral part of my studies and will be fully recognised
when I go back home.
What do I have to do?
1. Research the different choices
available (partner universities, duration, etc.) from the International
Service in my
university and meet the person in charge of exchange
2. Read as much information as possible about the place
where I would like to study from the brochures available,
and any other documents I can find.
(*) The prospectus for the foreign university
I am interested in will give details of the courses (duration,
of instruction, etc.). I can choose my course after thinking
carefully about all the information and in accordance
with the following
3. I respect the application deadlines
required by my university, working in liaison with the professor
Relations at my institution.
Application and study contract
60 ECTS credits measure the workload of
a full-time student during one academic year.
> If I study abroad for 1 trimester, I choose a study course worth
> If I study abroad for 1 semester, I choose a study course worth
> If I study abroad for 1 year, I choose a study course worth 60
ECTS credits are awarded for each course
and represent the workload of each course in relation to the
global workload necessary to
complete one academic year.
My course supervisor validates my choice on the study
contract that I complete and sign. I also hand in my completed application
These 2 documents, together with my grades, are sent to the host
university which validates and confirms acceptance of my application
and my choice of courses.
I can then prepare the practical aspects of my
stay in accordance with the instructions set out in the prospectus
of my future
What must I do during my stay?
I must respect the internal rules of the host
I also have 3 weeks after the start of
the course to change
my study contract should I find there are any problems regarding
my original choice. I must inform the professor in charge at
my home institution about any modifications to the original contract
and get his or her formal agreement.
Lastly, I must inform the International
relations service and
my professor should I decide to stop my programme for whatever
What happens when I come back?
My host institution sends my home institution
the transcript of records and credits and the ECTS
course, subject to formal evaluation.
The grades obtained abroad represent the quality of my work.
The person responsible for my study period abroad
will then convert my results using the ECTS grading scale.
My grades will be added to my student transcript and my study period
abroad will receive full academic recognition. I will then be able
to continue my course in the normal way as validation for my study
period abroad will be fully taken into account. Not only will the
course be counted as an integral part of the programme, but I will
also have gained an invaluable and highly rewarding multicultural
experience at the same time.
