Student Exchange with Partner Institutions
|ABOUT STUDENT EXCHANGE|
Student exchange program is a program where two parties or more agree to exchange their students. The program will run based on the Student Exchange Agreement or related documents. The program will allow you to go for one or two (maximum) semester(s) to partner institutions with credit transfer opportunity. It means that BINUS will acknowledge your final score/grade for certain courses that you take at partner institution to be transferred back to BINUS. To be able to do that, you must consult with your department.
Why the Exchange Program?
The benefits of taking the exchange program are limitless, really! It is a rewarding and enriching experience which allows you to immerse yourself in a different culture, potentially pick up a new language and see the world from a different perspective. You will make friends for a lifetime and have the key to open the door of global networking opportunities.
As for the financial part, the tuition fee at partner institution is fully waived. However you will still be responsible for BINUS tuition fee, as well as your living cost during the program.
