Exchange and Mobility Programme





Understanding the world means discovering it

Our school actively promotes that students study abroad in their 3rd year of their degree at UNNC. Most of our partner universities are eligible for all three undergraduate programmes (International Studies IS, International Studies with Languages ISL, and European Studies EuS). Encountering new challenges will be rewarding for your future careers and for your understanding of different cultures and societies.


Get ready for a globalised environment

Most of our students choose to learn a second foreign language in International Studies. You will become fluent when studying at one of our prestigious partner universities in those countries, and substantially increase your employability after you graduate.

Being an IS student is a privilege

As a student in International Studies, you can choose from three different categories of exchange partners: our sister schools within the Tri-Campus scheme, our exclusive partner universities where only IS students can exchange, and the UNNC-wide exchange programme.
