Bilateral exchanges

Student exchanges

Bilateral exchanges

Whether you are interested in getting an international academic or research experience you have the opportunity to spend a semester or two at one of the partner universities within bilateral exchange program.

How it works: Mining University sends nominated students to the partner institution, and they send their nominated students to us. All the exchange students still remain the students at their home institution. At the end of the exchange program, your credits will be recognised by your home university degree (max. 30 ECTS). Note that it does not add extra time to your studies. To become a bilateral exchange student please contact the International Office for more detailed information regarding application procedure.
