Below we list some points that need to be checked before formalizing proposals of interest:
- Talk to your supervisor about the possibility of international cooperation in your work and your interest in obtaining a dual diploma. The agreement may include more students in the same agreement.
- The agreement must be accepted by the foreign university and before proceeding the HEI must issue an official agreement document with the proposed terms.
- The Prorectorate will analyze the documents and issue the agreement signed by the Rector and forward it to the program to obtain the signature of the rector of the foreign university.
