In order to be admitted as an Erasmus student to the Faculty of Economics and Business Studies of the University of the Basque Country (UBC), students should currently belong to an institution with which the University of the Basque Country has a formal Erasmus Bilateral Agreement. Therefore students should check with the Erasmus Coordinator of their home University to confirm whether it has an agreement with the UBC (UPV/EHU). We maintain currently agreements with more than 50 universities in Europe, Latin America and other countries.
After your Coordinator gets in touch with ours by email (email@example.com) we will send you an email, confirming the reception of your nomination and most important the exact day for the welcome day we organize for all foreign students some days before the winter or spring semester starts.
Our degree system consist of four years divided in 2 semesters each (called "cuatrimestres"). You can follow the links below to find out all the courses with a short syllabus and the corresponding program.
Courses and Credit points
All the subjects belonging to the bachelors ("Grados") are already based on ECTS system and are 6 ECTS worth.
All courses belong to the first semester (1º cuatrimestre) or to the second semester (2º cuatrimestre). So you should check if the subjects you are interested in belong to the first or second semester.
The link to the academic calendar and courses timetable is available for the previous academic year until the very beginning of the next academic year. It may change only slightly year to year, but we recommend you checking it time to time.
It is very important to start your studies on time. If it is not possible you should ask for approval to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for submitting the application is 15 June for students applying for the whole academic year or first semester and 15 December for those applying only for the second semester.
