Bachelor and master level students are welcome to participate. Through MEP students are able to take preapproved classes at any MEP associated institution from around the world and receive UNA credit! Many classes are taught in English.


The housing options can vary, depending on the university the student chooses to study at. The typical options do include:
  • Dormitory
  • Living with a host family
  • Shared housing

  • In country transportation – Public transportation is much cheaper abroad students have options of trains, buses, taxis, etc.
