Agreements and Academic Mobility

​The university, through its International Relations Offic​e, has nearly 260 agreements with institutions in 36 countries on four continents, where students can undergo a semester or a full year of academic training. 

​At present, some 730 students are taking part in internship programs, 83 of them in foreign countries. 

​​The IRO also leads Sígueme, an inter-institutional system that links a group of Colombian universities and is aimed at fostering student mobility within the country. 

​Around 70 foreign students from 16 countries are currently pursuing university studies at EAFIT. 

​Confucius Institute of Medellín 

Due to China’s enhanced global standing, it is increasingly necessary to learn Mandarin and become familiar with the customs of that country’s ancient culture. For this reason, EAFIT, Universidad de Antioquia, and the Medellín municipal government formed an alliance with the People’s Republic of China that led to the establishment of a Confucius Institute in the city in 2010. The southern branch of that cultural establishment is located in one of the houses the university acquired in the La Aguacatala neighborhood. 

Spanish for Foreigners 

This program, which is part of the Language Division, enables foreigners to effectively develop their communicative competence in the Spanish language. It dates back 16 years and has been endorsed by Spain’s Instituto Cervantes. 

​​In 2014, 550 students from 40 countries on different continents were enrolled in the program, which provides participants with comprehensive support that includes assistance with obtaining a visa, getting to Medellín, finding housing, and opening a bank account. It also offers students the chance to enjoy additional social, tourist, and cultural activities. 

Exporting Programs EAFIT 

maintains a presence in the Central American region through its master’s degree programs in Business Administration and Criminal Law, which are offered in Guatemala in partnership with the Panamerican Consulting Group. 

​In addition, some continuing education programs have been established in the United States, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Argentina.​​
