Visiting Students Program

Visiting Student Program

The Visiting Student Program is aimed at students from both partner and non-partner universities interested in joining IE University from a semester to a year.

Explore different areas of knowledge

The structure of the Visiting Student Program allows you to both explore new areas of knowledge that you haven’t studied at your home university, and to concentrate on what you like, gaining new knowledge through innovative approaches and content.

A flexible structure

The possibility of choosing one semester or two allows you to design your year of international exploration as you choose. Whether you have an internship from September to December, or you are a student from the Southern Cone (completing your studies in December), you can choose the semester that begins in January. And if you have an internship, or have decided to travel in January, you can choose to start your program in September.

Thinking about your future

One of the reasons for participating in a Visiting Student Program is to be able to reflect upon your professional future, thinking about what you would like to do and be in the future. You will have access to advice from teachers, experts, and specialists at IE University’s Talent & Careers during your stay with us, allowing you to begin your process of reflection.

Develop skills for the professional world

The hands-on methodologies that IE University is globally recognized for, and which you will find in all of your courses, will help you develop abilities in critical thinking, oral and written expression, and skills in communication and teamwork.
