Bilateral Mobility Programme

What is it?

Bilateral Mobility allows students at UIC Barcelona to study or gain professional work experience in a country outside the European Union.

For how long?

From one semester to a full academic year

Is it funded?

This programme does not provide funding. However, there are several possible ways to finance your stay, such as the MOBINT and Santander Iberoamèrica grants, the latter of which is only valid for Latin American destinations.

What are its advantages?

The main advantages are the following:

  1. Recognition at UIC Barcelona of the courses undertaken in the host country
  2. Possibility of external financing
  3. Administrative benefits (student insurance and free enrolment at most host universities)

Where can I go?

UIC Barcelona has bilateral exchange agreements with a large number of universities all over the world. Check out the list of available destinations and universities at your faculty.

Why participate?

It has been proven that students who participate in international mobility are more and better prepared to face the current and future global world. Check out the advantages of international mobility.

What should I bear in mind?

If you want to participate, find out more about the host country as soon as possible. In particular:

  • The cost of living in the host country,
  • Requirements for visas and residence permits for students,
  • Any vaccinations required,
  • Required medical insurance policies,
  • How to obtain medical care.

The Internet, your host university, the Spanish Embassy in that country and students who have previously participated in the programme are good sources of information.
