Bilateral Exchange

After checking our Go Abroad Program Summary form, did you find out a Bilateral Exchange suits you the best?

Great!

Following our Step-By-Step Guide, you will get through the process easily!

1. What is Bilateral Exchange?

NSU has partnered with a number of foreign institutions through which NSU students may study abroad on exchange. Bilateral exchange involves paying NSU tuition to NSU. The student will pay for housing and meals in the host country. In most cases, the student may use financial aid and scholarships to help cover the cost. Students may also apply for a Study Abroad Grant through the Office of International Programs.
