Virtual modality


Virtual exchange is a new modality of educational interaction, in which students can take online courses (100% virtual) offered by higher education institutions with bilateral or network agreements, which may recognize the credits approved by the students subject to the exchange as long as they respect the bases and academic criteria required by the institution of origin. A virtual exchange program is in short a modality to study subjects of the curriculum in partner institutions through virtual platforms, without including travel to another city or country. These exchanges have the same validity as normal mobilities but with the ease of taking them from the comfort of your home.
