Exchange and Visiting Students

LAU welcomes those who would like to attend its campuses for a semester or a year as a “study abroad” experience.

Exchange students come through formal agreements between their home universities and LAU or through an Erasmus project. Visiting students are those who will attend LAU on their own initiative in the absence of formal agreements between the universities.

To learn more, see the particular application process and requirements as well as this brief guide for incoming international students.
