International students exchange program

spreedly-for-travel-238408bd8463e6f28f25976cc3dcef5e.png

 

Аn exchange program involves an agreement between two universities to exchange students. The advantage is that you do not have to pay tuition fees at the foreign university since you already pay tuition fees in SDU. There are several exceptions, however. Foreign exchange programs provide students with an opportunity to study in a different country and environment experiencing the history and culture of another country.

Exchange programs broaden the academic and social experience of students and promote cooperation between SDU and other institutions. The presence on campus of exchange students from partner institutions diversifies the student population and encourages local students to consider the benefits of an international educational experience.
