Around 700 Asturian university students go on stays each year thanks to the international mobility programs. The academic institution has agreements with other universities all around the world.
The new website of the University of Oviedo incorporates in its International section a space dedicated to mobility, in which students may easily check the countries with which agreements have been made and the universities of destination, along withe their corresponding websites.
The University of Oviedo has reinforced during the last years its investment in international mobility. The Asturian students may choose between 484 destinations in 50 countries of Europe, America, Asia and Oceania to finish their studies. These are universities with which the academic institution has made agreements for this academic year.
Every year, a thousand youths participate in one of the many programs that allow them to do temporary stays to complete part of their studies abroad. The Erasmus mobility is the most common one and that which has the most students doing their studies in a European country. The Erasmus Studies grants are co-funded by the European Union, the University of Oviedo and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports. Around 600 students participate every year in this initiative.
The International Agreement Program offers for the next academic year more than 70 places in universities of Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, Taiwan and Tunisia, with which the University of Oviedo has collaboration agreements that allow students to complete part of their studies in them.
The mobility options are expanded with programs such as the CONAHEC (Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration), of which the University of Oviedo is an affiliated member along with universities from the United States, Canada, Mexico and other institutions, and MEDESTAR (Mediterranean Area for Science Technology and Research), a project whose goal is to boost the cooperation between Europe, Egypt and Lebanon. Teachers and researchers and members of the administrative services may also participate in both programs.
