There are three types of mobility:
SPAIN: SICUE Programme (Exchange Programme between Spanish Universities) endorsed by the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities (CRUE) to promote the mobility of undergraduate students between Spanish universities. Students can carry out part of their studies in a different university with guaranteed academic recognition and adaptation to their educational profile.
The IRO offers 67 term and annual stays in 18 universities located in 7 Spanish autonomous communities (Andalusia, Asturias, Canary Islands, Catalonia, Valencian Community, Galicia, and Murcia).
EUROPE: Erasmus+ Programme. A European Union programme that promotes International Mobility in Education, Training, Youth and Sport. It is most well-known for promoting learning for students, teachers, and administrative staff through international mobility.

Also, the UAH offers Erasmus+ K107 Grants for European countries outside the European Union, such as Serbia, Russia, and Georgia. The IRO will give you information and advice, and organise the documentation needed to request the grant.
