The Ateneo de Manila University sends its students to and accepts students from partner universities on a cross-enrollment, tuition-waiver arrangement. For the said semester, the students can take courses in the host institution which will be credited towards the completion of their degree in their home university.
‘Tuition-waiver’ arrangement means that students pay the tuition at the home university but can study courses in the host university. Students normally shoulder personal expenses such as travel, visa processing insurance and accommodation. In certain cases, scholarships are provided or fee-paying students are accepted.
