Application Process


The online application is for exchange students from partner institutions only. To use this application, the student must be approved by his or her home university for exchange. If there are students who would like to participate in an exchange program at TECNUN but are not enrolled at a partner institution, they should contact their International Relations Office.


In order to do your nominations, we would need your coordinator to complete our online nomination form.
The nomination should state the following information:

  • Student’s name
  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Gender
  • Nationality
  • Major/Degree of study
  • Years completed
  • Semester(s) of study
  • Home University & country


Once the nomination deadline has finished we will send to students all the relevant information and instructions to follow in order to complete their application.

To apply for admission as an exchange student, you will need:

  • Fill out the online application form.
  • Scanned passport-type photo
  • Scanned passport
  • An official letter from your university certifying that you have been selected to undertake a semester at TECNUN.
  • Proof of health insurance. Students will not be admitted without proof of health insurance. Students must have adequate coverage prior to their arrival and this is their responsibility
  • Transcripts of records


The application periods are as follows:
