INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMMES (Erasmus+, Non-European Mobility, Santander)
Official degree courses
In agreement with the Bologna process, which seeks to integrate education systems in Europe, the University of Alicante has adapted its credit system to that of the ECTS.
1 ECTS credit equates to 25 hours of work in total: class contact hours (40%) and student independent work (60%); for example, if the course is allocated 6 ECTS, 60 hours are in class and 90 are of independent work from the student.
The normal work for students per semester is 30 ECTS, or 3-5 courses per semester.
Important: exchange students must select their courses in the subject area that has been approved on their bilateral agreement; those are the courses that are available on their UA Online Learning Agreement

Moreover, the University of Alicante offers courses which do not belong to the official studies: special courses and activities (less than 200-hour courses). If exchange students are interested in these courses, they must follow the procedure established by the office responsible for the particular course they want to take, and pay the fee, if required to do so.
These special courses cannot be included in the Learning Agreement.
