Phases of the Stella Junior programme

The Compostela Group of Universities wants to be your guide through the different phases of Stella Junior. The three main phases of the programme are the submission of applications, mobility and the submission of the supporting documentation. In this last phase, we will ask both the students and the staff of the host institutions to share their experience with us, to know the positive aspects and those to be improved.

Meeting of the Selection Committee

The members of the Selection Committee will meet online in May-June 2024 for the allocation of mobility and awarding of grants.

The resolution will be published containing the ordered list of the beneficiaries of the mobility grants and five alternates will be designated.


Phase 3

Acceptance of mobility

The selected students will receive a message from the CGU asking them to accept the mobility within 10 calendar days, counted from that communication.


Carrying out the exchange

Phase 1

Preparing for the exchange

Students accepting the exchange will receive the contact details of the person in charge of their mobility at the host institution so that they can fill in the mobility agreement and the work plan for their stay. These documents must be submitted to the CGU before mobility starts.
