After following these steps, the student can apply as an exchange student.

Evaluation of the research work (Master/Bachelor Thesis): it is assessed by a Board of Examiners during a public and oral presentation. More details and deadlines.

If you do not want to defend the research work (Master/Bachelor Thesis), please find more information here
