OUTGOING STUDENT EXCHANGE

SBM ITB students are encouraged to spend their semester abroad. We welcome both undergraduate and graduate students to apply for the student exchange program at one of our partner universities. Several principles of the student exchange program:

  • The student exchange program is self-funded. SBM ITB does not provide financial support for those wishing to participate in the program.
  • The academic credits earned by students at the partner university are transferable to SBM ITB. The number of credits transferred is subject to decision by each Study Program. Credits that cannot be transferred will be at the students’ own risk. Therefore, students must consult the Study Program (once selected) regarding the Study Plan (courses taken) at the chosen university.
