Did you know that, if you are a stricto sensu undergraduate or graduate student (master's and doctorate) at Bahiana, do you have the possibility of studying or being a visiting research student at universities in other countries?
This movement, also called mobility, can be done as an exchange student or as an independent student (free-move student). Let's see the difference in the programs available for these two categories:
Exchange student program
The exchange program is offered by partner universities of Bahiana, through bilateral agreements. These programs are called “exchange” because both students from the Bahiana can study at partner universities just as students from these universities can study in any of the courses at the Bahiana, at no additional cost for both. Students must, however, fulfill their obligations with the home institution during the exchange period.
Places for exchange students at Bahiana they are made available by the partner institution, in the first four months of each year, and reported to the REAI. These vacancies are filled through a selection process published in a notice, whose criteria for participation and classification are defined by the course coordinators and validated by the Dean of Teaching, Research, Innovation and Graduate Studies Stricto Sensu.
Notices for exchange vacancies are available on the REAI page, in the OPPORTUNITIES section, and are disseminated through our newsletters to the academic community.
Program for independent students (free-mover students)
Globally, higher education institutions from different countries offer programs for international visiting students in the free-mover category, which do not depend on prior agreement with the Bahiana.
As a result, such programs, in most cases, have a cost to the student, which varies according to each university.
Programs for free-movers students are described on official university websites. To be successful in their searches, the interested person needs to take the time to browse the websites of the institutions of interest.
In this category are visiting research students who can find many short-term programs for international students. Most master's and doctoral programs offer this opportunity, with application fees that pay off.
