2. Universidad Complutense de Madrid

 

  • The number of students you will send to E MADRID03 may by no means exceed the number of students mentioned in this agreement. More specifically, we do not accept the mechanism by which shorter periods of stay allow for the sending of more students, i.e. on an exchange of 1 student for 10 months, you may not freely send 2 students for 5 months, not even if their stay covers different semesters. Please take this into consideration when organising your students selection.
  • Complutense University has facilities for students with a learning or physical disability. Disabled students can rely on the support service “Office for the Integration of Persons with Disabilities“, which offers material, technical, and social aid. https://www.ucm.es/oipd   or   https://www.ucm.es//office-for-the-integration-of-persons-with-disabilities-
