An exchange student is a student (officially registered in a university or other institution for higher education abroad) who temporarily lives in a foreign country and attends courses or is involved in other academic activities.

Exchange students don’t receive a diploma from LUCA. However, all academic results will be sent to your university abroad in the form of a transcript of records.

You can study at LUCA as an exchange student on the condition that there is a cooperation agreement between the university where you are currently studying and LUCA. You can obtain more information about cooperation agreements from the international office at your university or college. The courses offered to exchange students vary depending on the specialisation and campus you choose.

Notice that not all programmes are open for incoming exchange students in both semesters. Please consult the availability per programme
