Student exchange programs – Outgoing students

Exchange programs & Erasmus+ partners

To study abroad is to learn things differently. Going abroad for a semester or a year is about getting knowledge and skills that are equivalent, but not identical.

Student exchange programs are formal agreements Rubika has with other universities. Under these agreements, you can spend a period of time studying at a partner institution in another country. While you are on an exchange, you will continue to pay any required tuition fees here in Rubika, but do not pay any tuition fees to host institution.

You will still be liable for transportation costs and living expenses, although there may be grants available to help with this if you are on the Erasmus+ program (see next section).

Am I eligible?

You must maintain a 13,5 average prior to your exchange departure.
You must have completed a full year of studies at Rubika prior to going on exchange.

Selection criteria:

Applications will be reviewed using the following criteria: Academic performance, portfolio, motivation, language skills and the good match of the courses/program in the host university.

An internship abroad allows you to enhance your skills and gain professional experience in an international environment. Internships can be a compulsory part of your academic program, or you can also use the summers to gain some professional experience. Either way, you may be able to apply for some financial aid through Erasmus+ or other programs.

Internships abroad:

Remember that once you have an internship offer, you need to upload the data to the “extranet” so that a contract can be drawn. Once that done, you can continue with the scholarship application process.
