Outgoing Exchange Students

The Exchange Student Programmes are a great opportunity for students to explore other destinations, meet new people and cultures, face a different educational system, and learn other languages while broadening horizons in a unique and memorable way!

In view of this, the University of Saint Joseph has signed reciprocal cooperation agreements with reputable universities worldwide to maximise contacts with other countries and people regarding education, cultural diversity and the enrichment of cultures. This offers students more opportunities to study abroad by providing international education knowledge and experience, as well as intercultural understanding that will make you stand out in a competitive global job market.

Our best wishes for a valuable and enriching experience abroad!
