Observing the deadlines above, partner schools should send their nominations together with the students’ Curriculum Vitae, for FIA’s analysis and approval.
Subsequently the nominees will be contacted and given information about the enrollment and other necessary proceedings such as Visas.

Students must have attended at least one semester at the partner school.
Grades indicated in the Academic Transcript must correspond to a minimum GPA of 3.0 (full mark being 4), or 75/100.
