Visitor Program/ Student Exchange Program

What is Visitor Program / Student Exchange Program?

Visitor Program / Student Exchange program is a program which will allow you to spend one or two semesters at universities abroad and take courses in a regular semester with credit transfer opportunity. Students are encouraged to study at universities all over the world.

What are the differences between a Visitor Program and Student Exchange Program?

Most students who choose to undertake a Student Exchange program will do so on an Exchange-basis, i.e. students study overseas at one of TEK-UP’s many partner universities for one or two semesters. There is, however, also the option of taking part in a Visitor program, meaning students study overseas at a non-partner university of their choice. Further differences between the two options are explained below:

Student Exchange Program

  • Study overseas at one of TEK-UP’s partner universities which students usually entitled for tuition fees waiver depending on the available quotas

Visitor program

  • Study overseas at a (non-partner) university of your choice which students generally need to pay tuition fees to the host university
  • You apply to the host university with the assistance of TEK-UP International Office and will continue to pay your tuition fees to TEK-UP.
  • Units taken at the host university are credited back toward your postgraduate degree at TEK-UP.
