Academic Agreements and Partnerships
The university engages in initiating, developing and maintaining academic cooperation agreements with universities and centers of excellence around the world, generating partnerships that cover the varied aspects of our international activity, including: student exchange, faculty and researcher exchange, collaborative research, joint programs, academic networking, and others.
Our institutional policy supports the generation of cooperation agreements based on pre-existing academic activity. In this way, we promote a "bottom-up" approach to academic collaboration.
For academic and scientific research agreements the process begins with the direct contact between academics and researchers, while institutional project agreements and student exchange agreements are processed through the International Office.
The International Office centralizes the university´s internationalization strategy, and assists institutional authorities, researchers, professors, students, and graduates. We provide a wide range of services including:
- Interinstitutional relations
- Negotiation and writing of academic agreements
- Information on scholarships, grants, and funding
- International scholarship administration
- Student exchange and academic mobility
- Orientation for graduate studies abroad
- Guidance for foreign students and visiting professors
- Identification of opportunities for international academic cooperation
- Assistance in the formulation, presentation and management of international projects
