There are two ways to take part in outgoing mobility in the DKU.
- First way is participation in double degree program. More detailed information can be found here.
- Second way is studying in a partner-university (within the country or abroad) during one semester.
Conditions of participation in the mobility program
Students of the 2−3rd years and 1st year students can participate in the mobility program. Last-year students are not eligible to take part in the mobility program, since the last year requires completion of internship and fulfillment of a thesis.
Also, students should have good academic performance in all subjects and a high level of proficiency in a foreign language, if they plan to study at one of the partner universities abroad.
Students are able to find sources of additional financing and apply for grants.
Also, students can also obtain external grants, awarded by partner universities or ministries of education of other countries.
Deadline for the submission of applications on academic mobility programs
- Applications for summer semester to be submitted in autumn
- Applications for winter semester to be submitted in spring
More detailed terms for applications submission will be announced on the University’s web-site and in social networks.
