Who is a Free Mobility Student?

Free Mobility Student (previously called Free Mover and Visiting Student)

A Free Mobility Student is a student who wants to enrol at the UGR for an academic semester or year outside a specific student exchange agreement between the UGR and the student’s home University. It implies the payment of enrolment fees at the UGR.

IMPORTANT: According to the University of Granada Norms on International Student Mobility, you can be a UGR free-mobility student just once, for the period of one or two semesters during the same academic year, not being possible to enrol as a free-mobility student in the following years.

In pursuance of the UGR INTERNATIONAL MOBILITY REGULATIONS, students from partner institutions are not allowed to carry out an international mobility in the framework of the FREE MOBILITY programme. Exceptional cases duly justified could be expressly authorised by the Vice-Rectorate. Whether the partner institution is interested in sending a larger number of students than the number established in the common bilateral agreement, they may ask for express authorisation to the Vice-Rectorate for Internationalization.
