INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMMES (Erasmus+, Global, Santander)

Exchange students must come from UA's partner institutions and must first be nominated by the international office at the home institution.

  • Exchange study period
    • First semester (September - January)
    • Full academic year (September - June)
    • Second semester (January - June)

The UA, by email, will provide the home institution with a Username and a Password for their nominated students to apply online. The home institution should pass them on to their students so they can enter the online application form.

Nomination deadlines:

  •  First semester / Full academic year: till 1 June

Online application procedure

After nomination by home institution, exchange students have to complete the application procedure online (No hard copies are needed). Deadlines:
