Outbound Programs

| Outbound Exchange Programs


The Mongolian University of Science and Technology does its best to provide their affiliated schools with opportunities to take their students outside Mongolia and the typical learning environment to explore new places, cultures, and experiences while gowing professionally. International educational trips serve many purposes, including enhancing global education, promoting social and emotional development, and exposing students to different learning environments and international best practices. For achieving this purpose, we offer the following international exchange and internship programs in collaboration with our international partners:

1. Chosun University | Summer/Winter Cultural Program



Chosun University exchange program is for students from MUST High School. During winter and summer vacations, high school students go to Chosun University that is located in Gwangju, Republic of Korea. This program provides students with unique intercultural experience by taking lectures on Korean language and culture and digital and global education for two weeks. All courses are taught in English and Korean.

2. Erasmus Student and Teaching Mobility | University of Minho, Portugal

University of Minho


The International Credit Mobility (ICM) is part of the Key Action 1 of the Erasmus + Program and allows MUST to send/receive students, teaching and non-teaching staff to study, teach and train in the University of Minho, Portugal(UMinho). UMOVE(ME) is the institutional project of UMinho under ICM, which allows UMinho to receive/send students, teaching and non-teaching staff from/to several partner countries including Mongolia.


Selection of Candidates

An open call will be launched and all interested candidates must submit the application + mandatory documents online. An official call at institutional level should be launched with detailed information such as eligibility requirements, financial conditions and benefits, application procedure, relevant data on the involved institutions (website, available areas, etc), preferred studying/teaching and research areas in line with the needs identified, in order to guarantee that the participant selection process is fair, coherent, transparent and well documented. MUST will be responsible for the first phase of the selection procedure of its own outgoing candidates and ensure that they have the necessary preparation and language skills to successfully perform an exchange period at UMinho. The final selection will be made by UMinho. The same set of rules will apply for our outgoing participants. The final selection of candidates will be made according to the principle of best candidates’ selection and a balanced distribution among partners.

 Organisation of Mobility

Once the beneficiaries are selected, there should be an extensive and careful preparation of the mobility period. We will be sending the specific templates and guidelines to be used for the project/mobility management:

  • Scholarship Payment: UMinho will be responsible for paying the scholarships to the mobile beneficiaries. The most common procedure is that payments will be made upon arrival by bank check. Concerning students, a payment system in different ways will be applied.

3. IAESTE (International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience)


In the aftermath of World War II, a new spirit pervaded the world: a desire for international understanding and co-operation. It was this spirit that brought forth both the United Nations (UN) and IAESTE, organisations dedicated to promoting these objectives. Today we believe that students with international experience are the key to tackling today's global challenges.

In IAESTE we are committed to fostering international understanding and impacting the development of young people through international exchange.   Our core values of Trust - in each other and our mission, Growth - providing a learning environment, Commitment - we don’t just say it, we DO it, Friendship - building lifelong, global friendships and Diversity - IAESTE is for EVERYONE, serves as a foundation for our strong organisational culture and as the principles that guide all our work and daily activities.  Click here for more...
