Live and study abroad
In Year 4, students who meet the academic and language requirements will have the possibility of taking part in an international mobility scheme for one academic semester (second semester). Mobility stays for the Medicine degree are designed to enhance students’ profile. In this regard, the main objectives are:
- Acquire a broader outlook on graduates' career development, both from an academic and practical perspective.
- Promote international exchange, the development of competences and skills that are key to the work of future graduates in Medicine (teamwork, attention to diversity, development of peace values, social justice and solidarity, among others).
- Achieve significant expertise in cross-cultural communication, inherent in the work of doctors.
- Promote the development of skills for greater mastery of foreign language communication.
The University of Deusto has already signed eleven framework agreements with international universities that offer programmes in Medicine in their curricula. All the partner universities are ranked among the top 1,000 universities worldwide according to the THE or QS quality rankings, which underpins their excellence.
Moreover, the University has signed non-Erasmus bilateral agreements with 53 universities worldwide that offer programmes in Medicine, 71 specific non-Erasmus bilateral agreements with universities that offer Medicine degrees, Erasmus+ agreements with 101 universities that have a medical school, among others, which gives an idea of its capacity to enter into specific agreements related to this degree.
The University also has its own network of Jesuit universities that offer degrees in Medicine and Biomedicine across five continents.
15 Jesuit universities offer Medicine degrees and other 25 offer degrees in the health sciences area.
Deusto has initiated contacts with organisations, universities and healthcare centres in several developing countries.
