International students can also apply to the call of participation to be a "Free Mover"
"Free Movers" are international visiting students that would like to study at our university. They belong to different Universities and their home institutions do not have any type of agreement or convention with the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla.
You must prove any evidence (official certificate) of knowledge in Spanish (B1 level or equivalent) as a minimum requirement.
Free Mover exchange students will respect the BUAP year or semester schedule according to the length of stay in Mexico which can be from a half-year program to an academic year.
Students must attend at least three BUAP subjects, provided that they correspond to the same level and/or are compatible to their home university academic programs.
In order to regain the courses taken at our University, students will respect the procedures and the regulations of their home institutions. It is very important that students will understand that they are not eligible to obtain a BUAP diploma even if they have taken different courses in our institution.
