Mobility and exchange students

In recent years the UGR has occupied the leading position in both outgoing and incoming Erasmus student mobility at European level and leading positions in teaching staff, non-teaching staff and placement mobility at national level.

In recognition of this, it was awarded the Erasmus Gold Star in 2007, and in 2012 hosted the Spanish national celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Erasmus programme, on the occasion of which the University awarded an honorary doctorate to Manuel Marín, Vice President of the European Commission when the programme was approved and a leading defender of its value for the internationalization of European universities.

At the UGR, we are also a leading participant in the Erasmus Mundus programme for cooperation beyond the borders of Europe, and we have a strong non-EU mobility programme financed by our own annual budget. Alongside more traditional student mobility, we promote international placement (internship) mobility amongst our students. Similarly, a variety of short-term mobility actions for summer courses and practical fieldwork are also offered.
