Inbound Mobility Programs

Inbound Mobility Programs are offered by UTHM to students from institutions outside the country. There are currently two types of inbound mobility on offer; student exchange programs and summer courses.


Inbound Student Exchange Programs

Through this type of program, candidates will earn academic credits and grades that will contribute towards the graduation requirements of their host universities. This will normally involve attending a module or a course (subject) that is deemed relevant to the degree program which the students are registered in.

UTHM offers one to two semester exchange at undergraduate level on a wide range of courses in Engineering, Science and Technology, ICT and Management which are taught in English. The list of academic programs in UTHM can be found here: UTHM Programs

The role of the international office is to assist students who are interested in joining such programs.Therefore, we welcome any inquiries regarding exchange programs to be directed to us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
