Before you arrive

For you to attend UAM as an exchange student under an international agreement, there must be a specific student exchange agreement between your home university and UAM. If there is no such agreement, students cannot propose one on their own initiative.

If there is an exchange agreement with your university and you are interested in coming to study at UAM as an exchange student, you must check with your home university if it is possible to do so and what steps are to be followed.

Being an exchange student under an international agreement involves two things:

First: being nominated as an exchange student by your home university.

Second: being accepted as an exchange student by UAM.



Deadlines for nominations (by home university):

Full year or 1st semester stay (September-January): June 15th

2nd semester stay (January-May): October 31st


Deadlines for the applications (by the student):

Full year or 1st semester stay (September-January): June 15th

2nd semester stay (January-May): October 31st



The home university must sent to serim.movilidad@uam.es the list of nominated students and each student´s documents required.



The home university must sent to serim.movilidad@uam.es the following documents by the deadlines stablished (June 15th or October 31st).

In case they would like to take courses from different Faculties, at least 51% of the courses selected must belong to one Faculty (e.g. three courses from three different Schools are not accepted, in this case, 2 courses must belong to one School, and the 3rd course can be taken from a different School).
