To qualify as an outgoing exchange student, candidates must:
Have passed all subjects on their first year syllabus before the beginning of the exchange period.
Be duly enrolled at the UIC for the current academic year and, in accordance with the UIC’s academic regulations, have enrolled for the following academic year before the beginning of the exchange period.
Obtain approval from the academic coordinator of their department. This is the person responsible for determining whether or not a candidate is suitable for participating in an exchange programme.
Complete the Learning Agreement, with prior approval from the academic coordinator of the student’s respective department at the UIC. (N.B. Students cannot request any subject(s) which they have failed to pass at the UIC or are currently studying).
Be nationals of one of the member countries of the European Union or a permanent resident of Spain.
Finally, outgoing candidates should bear in mind that each university reserves the right to establish their own admission criteria for certain subjects or programmes. In order to gain admission to certain universities students may have to undergo a skills assessment.
Candidates for outgoing exchange programmes organised by the UIC must submit the on-line application and submit the paper signed copy to the Department of International Relations prior to the deadline corresponding to the proposed study period.
If there is an unusually high level of demand for a limited number of exchange places for a particular destination, the academic coordinator of the department in question selects and nominates the most appropriate students. This is the reason why applicants are asked to indicate their first, second and third choices of destination in the application form; the Department of International Relations then proceeds to contact those students whose first choice university is no longer available in order to ask them for an alternative proposal, together with a new Learning Agreement.
Once outgoing students have been notified of the UIC’s "internal" acceptance of the application, they must contact their university of choice to apply for "external" acceptance.
It is important to bear in mind that many universities have their own admission criteria for exchange programmes; it is therefore, the student’s responsibility to send any additional documents that may be required. Final acceptance of the candidate is not fully confirmed until it is communicated in writing by the host university.
The Department of International Relations of the UIC informs all applicants of their "internal" acceptance, which depends on the decisions taken by the academic coordinators of the different departments, within a period of about fifteen days.
