Nebrija University has exchange agreements with universities around the world. The partner universities are European (through the Erasmus+ framework), generally within the Erasmus+ program, or outside of Europe (North America, South America, Asia and Australia), through bilateral agreements.
In any case, an exchange agreement deals with sending students to another university to attend for one or two semesters, as well as receiving the same number of students from that university. In both universities the credits obtained by their students are allocated.
Students who choose exchange places in partner universities are still enrolled in their university of origin (therefore they continue to pay tuition and fees for that university), but they can take courses at the host university at no additional tuition cost (as long as the credit load does not exceed the standards of the host university).
Given the relationship between Nebrija University and its associated universities, the nominations of potential exchange students at an institutional level (at Nebrija University, through the International Mobility Office) are processed. Once the candidates have the acceptance of the host university, the students are responsible for managing their enrollment at the host university, accommodation, any corresponding visa and valid medical insurance in the country in which they will reside.
The student will also work with the corresponding Academic Department to carry out the pre-selection of subjects that will be taken at the host university. The Learning Agreement, written by both parties, serves as a contract between the university of origin and the student.
Depending on the Learning Agreement, the student will know what subjects will be recognized upon his/her return and if passed, will be part of their academic record in Nebrija.
The exchange of students plays an essential role in the internationalization of Nebrija University and its collaborators. The Department of International Programs exists in order to promote this type of mobility and other internationalization initiatives.
The International Coordinators of the Academic Departments of Nebrija University are always the reference for all academic subjects abroad.
The Department of International Programs does not advise on academic subjects.
The student and the International Coordinator of his/her degree will pre-select the subjects that the student will take among those offered by the host university.
The student must follow the instructions of his/her host university regarding the registration in his/her classes there, which can take place online in the months prior to the stay, or once he/she is at the host university (varies by university).
In addition, before leaving, all students must complete the self-enrollment (although the process is a bit different, since it is an exchange) at Nebrija University. You can consult this matter with the General Secretary of Courses at Nebrija University.
When he/she arrives at the host university and has formalized his/her registration in the classes, the student must confirm with the international office in that university that he/she appears as registered in all the corresponding subjects.
The student must confirm any change by email to his/her International Coordinator in Nebrija. In addition, through the definitive Learning Agreement, the student, his/her host university and the International Coordinator at Nebrija University will confirm the final subjects in which the student has enrolled.
The host university will certify to Nebrija the courses taken by the student, the number of corresponding credits and the grade obtained through the Transcript of Records, or the grades certificate.
In order to allocate the credits, subjects and grades obtained abroad, it is necessary that they appear in the Learning Agreement and have been approved at the host university. Otherwise, the student must enroll in extra subjects upon his/her return to Nebrija.
In case the student receives his/her academic record directly, he/she must provide it to the Department of International Programs as soon as possible.
