Student exchange

Student mobility includes completing a part of the study program (one or more semesters) at a foreign university. Mobility can be organized during undergraduate or post-graduate studies. There are two types of student mobility: attending an exchange program during studies and attending the next level of studies i.e. full-degree mobility.

The advantages of mobility are numerous. In addition to making new friends and learning about different cultures, students learn a foreign language, gain new experience and most importantly, have higher employment perspectives both in their own country and abroad. Attending a foreign academic institution gives students a head start, and successful, and especially international companies see this difference.

Student exchange means spending one or more semesters at a foreign university during the course of a student’s studies at the University of Belgrade. For example, the exchange runs as follows: second year undergraduate students have the opportunity to go on exchange during the third year. During the exchange, students attend courses and exams that are (at best) equivalent to the courses at the home university. This is important because the exams passed at institutions abroad are recognized when the students return to the home institution. Students thus continue with their studies, not where they left off when going on the exchange, but on the following year of the study program, provided that they passed the required exams and that they meet the requirements for enrollment. At the end of the exchange, students receive a certificate from the foreign academic institution, and the duration of the exchange and exams that are passed are entered in the Diploma Supplement, indicating which academic institution was attended and with what grades. Unless the exams are recognized upon returning from the exchange program, the grades on these exams are not included in the grade point average.

Full-degree mobility means that graduates apply and enroll into study programs of master’s and doctoral studies at academic institutions abroad through various scholarship programs. Upon completion, they obtain a diploma of the institution and are not associated with the university where they completed their undergraduate studies.

Mobility programs that students of the Faculty of Organizational Sciences can attend are programs involving the University of Belgrade. An updated list of programs and projects involving the University of Belgrade can be found at:

In addition to these programs, students can apply within the following networks and programs:


CEEPUS stands for Central European Exchange Program for University Studies. This is a program of academic exchange started in 1993 for students, staff and researchers from Middle and Eastern Europe.
