Application Process

Students officially nominated from one of our partner universities need to complete the following sections within the online application and upload the relevant documents. 

For those applying through a third-party provider, this process will be managed on their behalf, requiring no additional steps from the applicant.

Students without an institutional agreement can apply to UPF International Programs as independent students (free movers). They must provide pre-approval of credit transfer during the application, and await further instructions upon application review.
