Virtual student exchange

It is possible to complete virtual studies to partner institutions at any time of your studies, just as long as you meet the prerequisites and the studies can be transferred to your PSP.

  2. Plan your virtual studies using the Learning Agreement form

Your International Affairs Specialist approves your application and study plan, and transfers your completed credits to your PSP.
