How to apply?

Enrollment for undergraduate student exchange programs is done online through our enrollment system - the student or International Office of the foreign institution does not need to send the original documents or digital documents by email. 

Students interested in developing part of their USP undergraduate studies must first be nominated by their institution in the Mundus System. Once the appointment has been made by their university, the student will receive an email including a link and instructions to complete their application.

The applications submitted will be analyzed by this USP International Agency and forwarded to the institutions where the student chose the courses for evaluation in the following days after the enrollment period. If the registration for the exchange is approved, the institution will send a letter of acceptance directly to the address given in the application. However, the institution may refuse enrollment in accordance with its own criteria.

The foreign institution can follow the application of its students in the Mundus System where they were appointed.
