Your online application

To apply for an international exchange program, you must first complete the online form with your IMT-BS student account via CAS authentication.

The application is divided into three steps:

All applications for an international exchange program must be made using the Mobility-Online application form. Fill in the online form while respecting all the instructions. You have the possibility to submit up to 4 destination wishes. The rank order of the choices corresponds to the order of preference. Once you have entered all the information in the form, a confirmation e-mail will instruct you on the next step of the procedure and you will receive a link to your Mobility-Online student space.

Once the form is completed, you will have unlimited access to your online account. Documents must be attached to your application and submitted online in your personal Mobility-Online space.

The final step is the transmission of your application to the Department of International Relations and Development (DRDI) for validation.

This is a validation of the application file only. The assignment to a university will be definitively validated by the Committee for student mobility held by the DRDI.
