Vela / exchange semester guide


„Vela“ is a web app for obtaining information and organising a student exchange abroad. It guides students throughout the whole process and assists in selecting a suitable partner institution, applying, preparing, executing the semester and carrying out follow-up tasks. The public area answers general questions and offers a filterable search for partner institutions to make a well-grounded decision possible.
The student's university e-mail adress gives access to the private features of “Vela” which
keeps the students posted on their progress, tasks, deadlines and the communication with the international office staff.
