Do I have to get good marks?
Places are first assigned on the basis of academic record. The better your average mark, the more chances you have of gaining a place and a mobility grant. In addition, each faculty has its own specific requirements relating to academic record. We therefore recommend you work hard right from the first term to achieve the best possible marks.
Can I take part even though I have failed some subjects at the time of going abroad?
Not usually, no. However, you should check the specific requirements of your faculty.
How many credits/ECTS are needed?
For this and other academic questions, contact your faculty's academic coordinator for international mobility.
Who can help me choose the host university?
Studying abroad is an important decision that will be key in your progress through university and will enrich your studies. It is therefore important you take the decision seriously. The first thing you should do is to check the list of available agreements in your faculty. You should select 3 destinations in order of preference. To do this, we recommend you visit the university website, and make a decision based on how well you speak the host country's language. You can also contact your faculty's academic coordinator for international mobility in your faculty.
Who can help me find a company to do my traineeship?
It is your responsibility to find a company where you can do your traineeship. However, you can contact the traineeship department at your faculty and the list of websites where you can find vacancies.
What is a Learning Agreement (LA) or a Training Agreement (TA)?
- The LA is an agreement and subject validation between UIC Barcelona and the host university.
- The TA is an agreement on the type of traineeship you will do at the university or outside company.
- Both must be approved by UIC Barcelona and the outside institution before you begin attending. This applies to Erasmus, bilateral mobility and SICUE students.
What is the subsidy agreement?
This is the Erasmus+ contract in which you agree to fulfil your rights and obligations as an Erasmus student, and which specifies the duration of your placement and the amount of your grant. It only applies to Erasmus+ students.
What happens if I fail at the host university?
You have to resit the examination at the host university, or retake the non-validated credits at UIC Barcelona.
How are credits validated?
On your return to UIC Barcelona, once you have your marks certificate from the university you attended and according to the agreed terms of the Learning Agreement or Training Agreement.
