Student Mobility Program for Undergraduate Students

Requirements to participate in the Program

      1. Be regularly enrolled, attending at least the 3rd semester of the Nursing Undergraduate Program at EERP;
      2. Demonstrate intermediate knowledge of the language of the country where the exchange will occur;
        3.Have a weight average equal or above 7.0 (seven) and no failing grades.

The student can apply to the program up to the last semester, as long as some credit is left to be completed when the student returns from the exchange. Some international institutions require that students have completed at least the second or third year of the program.

In relation to language, for universities where classes are administered in English, the student must present a TOEFL or IELTS score. Scores may vary according to the partnering Higher Education institution. In some cases, a proficiency test is not required, only the presentation of an intermediate knowledge certificate (French, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese).

Please note: Learning a language is not one of the objectives of the CRInt/EERP exchange program, rather its improvement.

How and when to participate

The student must always apply one semester before the beginning of the program, that is, at least six months in advance. Applications must be placed in the second week of classes of each semester. The following documents must be presented at the time of submission:

      1. Completed submission form according to the Application with a photo
      2. Proof of language proficiency
      3. School transcript(s)
      4. A copy of a valid passport
      5. Recommendation letter from an EERP professor
      6. A study project or work project signed by the responsible professor

Candidates may apply to the programs of their interest, according to availability at the partner Higher Education institutions, in order of preference, as long as they present proof of proficiency in the language and remaining requirements. The absence of any document impedes the application to the programs. Candidates are exempt from providing proof of proficiency for Portuguese speaking universities.
How to develop your work plan

Students, through an official letter, must present a request to the EERP dean’s office with a brief description of their background as a student, researcher and/or professional. The general and specific objectives of the activity should be presented, as well as a summarized description of what they will do and the reason they have chosen a given institution for the exchange, indicating their advisor. This document must be signed by the student and by the advisor and sent to the EERP dean’s office through the handling documents division.

Contact or the International Cooperation office for further information.

Selection Process

The criteria used to evaluate the candidates for exchange through CRInt/EERP are based on the student’s academic performance. Full information is provided here.

Getting ready for the exchange

The students who confirm interest in a vacancy will be notified by the CRInt/EERP concerning procedures upon their acceptance into the institution for which they were selected. Notification generally includes registration form and other documents depending on each institution.
Sending these documents is a responsibility of CRInt/EERP. The international institution sends an acceptance letter in the name of the student, which is used for obtaining a visa. CRInt/EERP is the only and exclusive instance through which intermediation of documents to occupy the vacancy offered by the partner institution occurs and can therefore, guide and help students in any other issues related to the exchange.

The student’s responsibility

      1. To arrange the visa for the country in which exchange will occur
      2. Buy round-trip tickets
      3. To arrange accommodation (some international institutions have accommodation on their campuses but others do not, though all offer some assistance to students to arrange a place to stay)
      4. To choose courses
      5.To bear all the expenses concerning lodging, meals and transportation. The partner institution is responsible for expenses related to courses.

Translated Curriculum

To participate in the exchange program, the selected student must send to the international institution his/her transcript translated into English or Spanish, according to the country of destination. The English version of the curriculum of the Bachelor’s program is available here and the Spanish version is available here; and the English version of the curriculum from the Bachelor’s program with a teaching diploma is available here and the Spanish version is available here.

How to transfer credits

Courses taken abroad are equivalent to credits earned in elective courses or will be added to the transcript of the student at EERP as activities performed abroad. For that, the student has to provide proof that his/her transcript with the courses taken is authenticated by the Brazilian embassy or a consulate in the corresponding country.
