  • Pay UC tuition fees, get an international experience
  • Gain credits approved by UC Business School
  • Enhance your CV with demonstrable international engagement

Paige studied with the Audencia Business School (France) as a part of the UC Virtual Exchange Programme 

“I would definitely recommend that others undertake a virtual exchange! A virtual exchange allows you to develop more of a global mindset, learn new things and meet new people – all while sitting at home! It is also a fantastic opportunity to learn from some incredible professors who are experts in their fields. Not only did I love what I learnt, but it gave me UC credit too – bonus!”
