Academic mobility refers to the movement of students, faculty, and administrative staff, from a home institution to a host institution



Academic mobility refers to the movement of students, faculty, and administrative staff, from a home institution to a host institution, in order to participate in research activities and technological innovation along with training, teaching, and educational programmes.

An Exchange Programme is defined by a Memorandum of Understanding that has been signed by two or more institutions and works upon a basis of reciprocity.

An Independent Programme is based upon a participating individual’s willingness to cover tuition costs at both the host institution and the home institution.

A Special Programme is adapted to the requests expressed by an interested party who generally covers the agreed costs.
