Selection a host university and courses
It is important to rinse well with respect to courses that are suitable and fit with the program country. All courses taken at the guest institution need to be part of the program at the University and must program and get it approved by the representative of or's international division.
The choice of schools must also take account of the individual departments and subjects within the university have different partner schools. This is particularly true of Erasmus and Nordplus co-operation.
