Students

 

All UNCuyo undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to spend one semester abroad. These exchanges (also known as mobility programs) are run by SIIP (the Secretariat for Research, International Relations, and Graduate Studies, for its Spanish acronym).

International Exchange Programs 

During the academic year there are two major exchange program Calls. Successful applicants get to go on an academic exchange for one semester.

Each Call is open approximately for one month and includes all necessary information about application and evaluation processes and a list of all opportunities available at foreign universities. You can only apply while the Call is open. Follow us on our social media channels and make sure you don’t miss our next Call.

It is worth noting that the list of available universities varies with each Call depending on the different exchange programs and agreements entered into by and between UNCuyo and foreign universities. Therefore, each Call will offer different benefits and opportunities.
