EBS students have the possibility to become exchange students in all our partner universities and other higher educational institutions around the world – mainly in Europe, but also in Australia, Mexico, Russia and Asia. You can choose between 70 partner universities.
Every semester more than 30 students study abroad, some of them in such prestigious universities as Copenhagen Business School (Denmark), Lancaster University (UK), Helsinki School of Economics (Finland), Monash University (Australia) etc.
You may qualify for student exchange, regardless of whether you are a daytime, evening, distant or master student. Being an exchange student means that you study abroad for a semester or two. Some universities do not require a tuition fee and all student rights are applicable.
There are different possibilities to study abroad:
You may choose between EBS partner universities and receive a scholarship from the European Union and Republic of Estonia to cover your travel expenses. The scholarship is only applicable to those who study in the EU countries.
The partner university provides a list of subjects that international students may choose from. EBS students generally base their choice on their own curriculum in EBS. The credit points that you have received in the foreign university will be transferred by EBS and you do not need to take the subject again.
Studying Outside the European Union
In case you choose an EBS partner university outside the EU, you do not qualify for the scholarship offered by the EU and Republic of Estonia. It is worth finding out whether the host university provides the opportunity to apply for different scholarships.
An EBS student may choose any university other than EBS partner university and study there as a free mover. This means studying in the host university and paying its tuition fee. The choice of courses is the same as for all other international students and credit points are also transfered. EBS has partner universities outside EU countries. Choosing the courses and transfering credit points is the same as within the ERASMUS-program.
EBS Bachelor students of International business administration have the possibility to acquire a double diploma from Lancaster University Management School in the UK. The system of double diploma means that the two universities fully acknowledge the system of credit point transfer between the two universities. The student will spend two years in Lancaster University in the UK and will defend his/her final thesis or project at EBS. The student must comply with the graduation requirements of the host university and EBS. The diploma of the foreign university is applicable together with EBS diploma.
