Admission procedure

How to apply

Exchange students who are applying to study one or two semesters at FNB, must apply through the International Relations Office at their home institution. Note that we do not process applications from students who are not nominated by our partner institutions. In order to apply, you can follow the steps below.

Step 1. First of all you must be nominated by your home institution. Once your home institution has nominated you, we should receive an email from them with the nomination.

Step 2. Once we have received your nomination, you can send us the following application documentation via email to

  • Application form with your signature.
  • Erasmus+ learning agreement approved by your home institution. This learning agreement must be signed by the three parties (student, home institution and host institution) before the student leaves his/her home country. A signed copy of this document, which describes the proposed study-abroad programme, must be received by all three parties before the beginning of the exchange period.
  • Current transcript of records
  • Copy of your passport or ID card
  • Copy of your European insurance card or similar

Application deadlines are:

31st May to apply for the Fall semester or full year

30th November to apply for the Spring semester

Step 3. Once your course selection is approved, you will receive an email from our international section with instructions on practical matters.


To be eligible for admission to our exchange programmes, you must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. be enrolled as a student at one of our partner institutions and be nominated by them
  2. have fulfilled at least 60 ECTS or equivalent within your study field 
  3. be sufficiently proficient in Spanish and/or English to follow our courses 

Concerning this final point, note that as an exchange student you may choose courses taught in Spanish and/or English. Consequently, you need to be sufficiently proficient in Spanish and/or English to be able to follow, participate and be evaluated in these languages. It is sufficient that you indicate your level of English and Spanish on the Application Form, but we expect all our exchange students to have minimum of B2 proficiency according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
