PSUT has cooperation agreements with numerous international universities according to which student exchange programs are implemented (Erasmus Student Exchange Program). These programs allow students to study abroad in partner universities in Europe and Asia, and aim to provide opportunities for students to increase their knowledge and hone their experiences while they receive academic and practical training. They also enable students to share the history, culture and traditions of these countries and strengthen cooperation frameworks with partner universities.
PSUT’s student exchange program gives the opportunity to study abroad in international universities for a period of one or two semesters. The University has several agreements with the most prestigious universities in Europe and Asia. For example: Cardiff University (UK), Hasselt University (Belgium) and Barcelona University (Spain). The opportunity is open to all students to participate in student exchange programs according to the conditions announced each semester by the University's International Relations Office. Some of these opportunities are fully funded.
PSUT offers joint cooperation programs, after having signed agreements with some of the most prestigious universities in the world. The agreements focus on partnership in academic programs, granting academic certificates, and continuing graduate studies, in line with the University's goals in promoting scientific research and contributing to sustainable development in the Kingdom. Through these programs, undergraduate students at the University can study one of the agreed-upon programs, and obtain two certificates from two universities.
PSUT has signed cooperation agreements with Indiana University Bloomington (IU-Bloomington), University of Oakland (OU), and University of Michigan-Dearborn (UM-Dearborn) of the USA, allowing students to study joint majors in engineering, computer sciences and business.
PSUT’s partnership programs are among the small number of such outstanding partnerships in the region. They provide students with a golden opportunity to continue their studies in the most prestigious universities in the world, while taking advantage of the discount (approximately 43% or sometimes more) offered to PSUT students. Such programs lead to the shortening of the time period needed to obtain a Master's degree or go for a period. Students can study at the partner university for a period of one or two semesters during any stage of study, including the PhD.

1. Each student must register and study a minimum of four (4) study courses (5 ECTS) for each course during the student exchange period.
2. The courses studied by the student during the student exchange period are equated on the (pass/fail) basis, and are not calculated in the GPA.
3. To facilitate the academic department’s approval of the courses that the student will study during the exchange period, please take the following steps:
a. Print the course descriptions for the courses that the student wishes to study during the exchange period. These can be obtained from the website of the university to which the student wishes to apply. The university can be contacted if the course descriptions are not available on the university’s website.
b. Show the course descriptions the instructors who teach the corresponding courses at PSUT in order to be approved. Upon obtaining approval from faculty members for all the courses that the student wishes to study, he/she submits them to the head of the academic department along with the registration form (Learning Agreement).
4. After the student receives the department head's signature on the learning agreement, he/she attaches the registration form to the exchange program application.
5. Each student must obtain the signature on the registration form for each university to which he/she wishes to apply.
