  1. Inform the International Relations Office when a new agreement is being planned (see contacts opposite)
  2. The International Relations Office will ask your faculty for approval by contacting the Head of mobility (the member of teaching staff responsible for international exchanges) and the mobility coordinator (the study advisor in charge of student mobility) if the agreement includes student exchanges.
  3. If the faculty supports the project, the International Relations Office will draft the agreement and have it signed.
