CERTIFICATES OF ATTENDANCE
Certificates of Attendance are required by the Home University to corroborate the arrival and departure of an exchange student. The certificates may be submitted to the International Relations Office to be signed by the Secretary of International Relations and then be returned to the student.
The new guidebook will be released soon. In the meantime, you can send all your enquiries to Alexia.Pfaffendorf@fce.uba.ar
This is a new initiative of the International Relations Office to ensure that students have a preset parity of credits for each course from this School. This is necessary due to the fact that each course has a different workload, different importance within the curriculum, requiring greater commitment to study in order to achieve the objectives for each course.
To understand the credit value of each course, students can consider that courses with higher workload, 6 vh (6 hours per week), have the most credit, while courses with a workload of 4 vh (4 hours per week) and 2 vh (2 hours per week) correspond to a smaller amount of credit. Below you can find a list of the courses that international students can take, subdivided by the department they belong to, all belonging to the Professional Cycle of every career in this School and its corresponding equivalence in credits or ECTS.
