Section of International Mobility

The Section of International Mobility is, among other competences, responsible to support the mobility processes of its students and professors. Through the participation in various mobility programs, the Section of International Mobility has been developing a parallel network of agreements that allows for a wider range of options and a level of diversity which is in accordance to the multitude of interests of its students.

Students’ mobility aims at being a form of recognizing school merit (any student with unaccomplished subjects is not allowed to go abroad, and the ranking of candidates is conceived according to their average grade at the date of the tender).

After the attribution of a mobility spot, the student must schedule a meeting with the responsible coordinator for the program and elaborate a study plan to be integrally accomplished in the receiving Institution. The student is also required to previously agree with the coordinator which FCM subjects will be credited for final degree concession purposes. “Free-mover” students are part of a different procedure.

In order to enable the implementation of the initiatives and projects, we need what is most important, your participation.
