The IADE-UE encourages the entire community of students, teachers and staff to undertake a period of international mobility, considering this activity fundamental to its own internationalization and also for the personal and professional development of its students and staff.
In this sense, it offers more than 100 international partnerships with university institutions around the globe.
Experiencing international mobility is key to the development of global professionals. The Universidade Europeia encourages the periods of mobility throughout students’ academic careers through an extensive network of international partnerships. The List of partnerships by field of study is updated every six months and can be consulted on the International Office page on the Student Portal.
Students will be able to study at prestigious international universities through different international mobility agreements
IADE-UE is proud to be able to affirm that it has a long tradition of exchange with several educational institutions, welcoming annually about half a hundred students from various countries such as Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Chile, and the United Kingdom, among many others.
The global programmes allow us to offer Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees taught entirely in English, which has allowed us to establish new partnerships for international cooperation around the world.
If you are interested in taking a semester or academic year at IADE-UE as an exchange student (Erasmus or other programme), the first step is to consult your University's International Relations Office to confirm if there is a partnership between the two institutions.
Lists of curricular units available for exchange students can be found in this catalogue.
The application for study mobility programmes at IADE-UE should only be made after the official appointment by your university. After this step is completed, you can complete the entire process online. We suggest that you prepare all the documentation in a timely manner so that you have everything ready when you submit the form. Only applications submitted within the deadline will be accepted.
Note that submitting your application does not guarantee you a place at IADE-UE. You should always wait for an email or acceptance letter.
The International Relations Office of IADE-UE organizes the Welcome Week every six months, an initiative dedicated to integrating new incoming students, which usually takes place the week before the start of classes. Participation in this activity is highly recommended, as it offers new students the opportunity to:
Mobility programmes as well as members of the local community, through various group activities (dinners, guided tours, parties).
Regarding accommodation, transport, bank accounts, visas and other social and cultural activities.
With our regular students and get into the academic spirit and life.
In handling all the necessary documentation (academic, social and personal) for the duration of the mobility programme.
The IADE-UE offers a Portuguese Language and Culture Course that at the end of the semester confers 3 ECTS. During the course you will have the opportunity to get the A1 level of Portuguese Language and make some cultural visits.
Every year the International Office organizes a competition for all students wishing to undertake international mobility at one of the IADE-UE partner universities. During the competition, information sessions which cover the application process are organised and, whenever possible, students who have already taken part in mobility programmes are present to give their testimony.
This contest takes place in 2 phases:
Detailed information about the competition as well as the list of partner institutions by field of study are updated every six months on the Office's page on the Student Portal.
Since each partner university has a limit number of vacancies, it is necessary to select candidates.
a) Student’s grade average in relation to the average of the course;
b) Number of ECTS already completed in the course, divided by the total number of ECTS which can be carried out by the end of the semester prior to the moment of application (number of semesters x 30 ECTS).
Weighting factor = 55% (a) + 45% (b)
There is a limited number of Erasmus scholarships. Even if the student does not obtain a grant from the European Commission or other party, he/she can enjoy Erasmus student status. In this way you have all the advantages of the status, except not benefiting from a monetary scholarship.
The processing of the scholarships is carried out by the International Office. The selection criteria are the same as those that are used in the selection of destinations.
Upon returning, the student must submit a request for accreditation of the courses taken in international mobility by opening a specific form at the Secretary Online/Student Portal. You must attach a Study Recognition Proposal validated by the Course Coordinator and the Certificate issued by the Host University.
