International exchanges

Learn here the requirements that foreign students, professors, and researchers must meet to apply to the international exchange programs of Universidad de Antioquia.

1. Academic exchanges for international students

Students from foreign institutions who have an agreement with Universidad de Antioquia have the possibility to attend one or two academic terms at the university, exempted from tuition. The courses that international students intend to study must be previously approved by the students’ home university. Upon their return, these courses will be recognized as part of their studies.

In accordance with Colombian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, international students must enroll in at least five credits per term, equivalent to ten weekly hours, to reside legally in Colombia. The tuition fees for the exchange programs depend on the terms of  each agreement.   

Requirements for the exchange program

The home university must submit the following documentation of their students in soft copy to movilidadinter@udea.edu.co, addressed to the International Affairs Office.

1. To be enrolled in a university that has an agreement with Universidad de Antioquia. [See agreements.]
2. To have a GPA equal to or higher than 3.5 in a 5.0 scale, certified by the official transcript.

Health Insurante

Foreign students accepted into Universidad de Antioquia must acquire an international health insurance plan valid in Colombia. It must be presented upon arrival to the institution and before enrolling in the corresponding academic term. The plan, in any event, must include repatriation. For students accepted into the Faculty of Medicine, the insurance plan must cover biological hazards.

We strongly suggest that the insurance adquired by the student guarantee direct payment for health services or medical interventions.
