CONAHEC Mobility Programmes
Universities and other institutions from the USA, Canada and Mexico collaborate in CONAHEC (Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration), in which the University of Oviedo participates as an affiliate member.
The current CONAHEC mobility grants for this year's call are incompatible with each other, as well as with Erasmus study grants and the cooperation agreements grants announced by the University of Oviedo.
What does this program allow me to do?
Study for a semester, an academic year or a summer course at a foreign university belonging to the CONAHEC network.
What does the grant consist of?
The agreement allows you to pay tuition at your home university and study at your chosen exchange university.
No additional aid is available with this agreement for travel expenses, accommodation or living expenses. All costs at the exchange university are paid by the student.
What are the registration dates?
Registration dates vary according the the participation period. You can check them at the website of the CONAHEC Program.
How many places are available?
There is no fixed number of places. The University of Oviedo channels received applications which meet the participation requirements and sends them to the exchange university, which makes the final selection. In the event that the exchange university establishes a limited admission, pre-selection screening will be done according to the grade average on the transcript.
