INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMME OF ACADEMIC MOBILITY BY AGREEMENT

The International Programme of Academic Mobility by Agreement of the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM) is managed by the Oficina General de Cooperación y Relaciones Interinstitucionales (OGCRI) and its objective is to facilitate the register in our University of foreign students from universities with which we have an agreement of cooperation for academic mobility.

San Marcos offers to these foreign students the service of consultancy to obtain the Official Visa and give the academic support for the accomplishment of their stay of studies. Each student receives the designation of a tutor who orients his/her during the process of registration in the Faculty. Concluding the stay they receive their certificates and return to their universities of origin where they will carry on with their studies.

Furthermore the UNMSM offers the services of the library, transportation into the campus, gym, Internet, university clinic, and centres of social, cultural and academic activities.
