UPLB promotes student mobility through academic and research collaborations globally.

UPLB OIL initiates the student exchange application process biannually, typically in January and September. We encourage all interested candidates to stay tuned for updates and notifications on our official website and Facebook page.

Eligible students are invited to submit their applications for placement at UPLB's esteemed partner universities. The Committee on Internationalization (CIZN) diligently reviews all application materials from prospective candidates as part of the selection process.

The host university does not charge tuition fees; therefore, UP outbound students are only responsible for covering expenses such as the visa fee, roundtrip airfare, insurance, living allowance, and accommodation fees.

Once accepted, students may apply for the MOVE UP Financial Assistance Program from UP for additional entitlements.
