Mutual Trust. Modest Effort. Different Timing. Same Exam. These are the fours principles that have guided the agreements between partners.
The exchange of online courses for credits between partner universities is governed by one concise agreement.
A consortium of top universities
Recognizing that ideas transcend nations and that international immersion is essential, this the Virtual Exchange Program enables students to join a global community of learning and to earn course credits. To establish a balanced exchange, the consortium is homogenous in terms of academic standards, reputation and rankings. All participating members have developed an open and online strategy. At the same time, we recognise that our exchange program is new, undergoing continuous improvement. Participating universities are at different stages of program availability and course offerings, with more courses currently in development for the future.

The European partners
Within the Virtual Exchange, there is a subgroup of European partners that come from countries that belong to the Bologna treaty. Having this Bologna framework and being in similar time zones makes some aspects of virtual collaboration easier.
