International Exchanges

IQS is fully committed to the idea of internationalizing science and believes that stronger international ties lead to higher quality studies and research.

Student exchanges with foreign universities are an ideal way to complement IQS studies with an experience that will enrich students both academically and personally. Exchanges are made with renowned foreign universities, with which IQS has established exchange agreements. Specifically, IQS has exchange agreements with 96 universities: 44 in Europe, 31 in North America, 12 in South America, 3 in Central America, 5 in Asia and 1 in Africa.

Through its International Relations Office, IQS supports and guides those students who wish to study part of their programs abroad. The International Relations Office also offers assistance to all international students who wish to come to IQS.

Thanks to these international exchanges, IQS students or researchers will enjoy the following advantages:

  • Improve a language: there is no better way to learn a language than to live in a country where it is spoken. This improves their professional possibilities, as international companies look for candidates who can speak a second language fluently.
  • New relationships: they will have the opportunity to become acquainted with people who have views and cultures that are different to theirs, who may even help them in their professional lives.
  • Skills development: an experience of living abroad for a certain time period helps people become more responsible and committed to others by understanding cultural differences.
  • Employment: students’ network of contacts will noticeably grow internationally by studying abroad, which will pave their way towards other companies or other possibilities.
