The International Exchange program and Erasmus + Exchange programs are available to current students at the IUS who wish to travel abroad.

Since our University strongly supports the mobility programs, it is undoubtedly that it also recognizes the mobility achievements. If the gained knowledge and experience comes from regular lectures abroad then, at our University they are accepted in the format of credits. Usually those credits are counted in the scope of elective and free elective courses. On the other hand the experiences achieved from trainee ships in enterprises are accepted as practical work which is conditional during the studies
