International Exchange Search Engine - IESE

Students taking part in the exchange programmes generally benefit from the following:
  • exemption from enrolment/registration fees and tuition fees at the host university;
  • recognition of credits earned abroad (subject to approval by the Board of Examiners);
  • a contribution towards travel and accommodation costs (grant).

In addition, a number of universities provide language courses. This may be an intensive/’crash’ course before the start of the term in question, or a course lasting for the duration of your time at the host university.

A study period abroad can be a valuable experience for a number of reasons:
  • your command of the language of the country in question will improve immensely;
  • you will come into contact with the culture of a different country, a different way of life;
  • you will have the opportunity to learn about a different legal system and legal culture;
  • you will learn another legal language;
  • it offers the opportunity to begin an international network of contacts, which can be very useful for your future career;
  • it can make all the difference on the employment market.
