The UM Office of International Affairs plays a pivotal role in the University’s international efforts.
UM’s students are studying abroad in increasing numbers, with access to top institutions in key destinations world-wide. In addition, many professors teach and do research abroad. The University's curriculum and programs are increasingly international in focus.
The Office of International Affairs complements UM's academic mission by helping to identify the UM's international priorities and to facilitate educational opportunities abroad. It connects the UM community to international opportunities, promotes the University's programs and courses abroad, and supports international students on campus.
The UM Office of International Affairs designs and negotiates institutional links with universities, international organizations, cooperation agencies and educational departments of accredited diplomatic representatives in Uruguay.
International Educational Experiences
In addition, we coordinate the University’s study abroad and exchange programs for outgoing and incoming students.
Integration of International Students and Scholars
We are also responsible for facilitating the integration of international students and scholars into the UM community and Montevideo, receiving applications from students who wish to study and professors who wish to teach and carry out research projects at the Universidad de Montevideo.
