The International Office Geosciences gives a Study Abroad presentation every year in October. The last presentation took place on Tuesday 16 October 2018. Have a look at the slides of this presentation.

General study abroad presentations

The University International Office also organises study abroad presentations.

Take a look at the faculty and universitywide destinations for students at the Faculty of Geosciences.

The conditions you have to meet if you want to study abroad are the following:

  • You are enrolled as a full time student at Utrecht University.
  • As a Bachelor’s student you have earned at least 60 credits.
  • As a Bachelor’s student you have to finish your programme in no more than four years.
  • As a Master’s student you need the permission of the coordinator of your programme.

Discuss your plans

As a Bachelor’s student it is advisable to discuss your plans with your Study Advisor before you make your application, especially your Study Plan and your destination. Your Study Advisor is:

  • Earth Sciences (‘Earth’ programmes and Marine Sciences): Almar de Ronde.
  • Innovation, Environmental and Energy Sciences (‘Sustainability’ and ‘Innovation’ programmes, Energy Science and Water Science and Management): Pieter Louwman.
  • Human Geography and Spatial Planning (‘Urban’ , ‘Economic’ and ‘Social’ programmes, GIMA): Jos Bierbooms.

You will find their contact information at the bottom of this page.

You have to upload your Study Plan when you make your application. If you are doing a Bachelor's or a Master’s programme, your plan has to be signed by your programme coordinator. Make sure you add the mandatory courses with name, code and timeslot. Your studyadvisor will check if you are able to finish your programme in no more than four years. 

After selection

The exam commission has to approve your choice of courses, after you are selected to study abroad. The exam commission will check for overlap with the courses you have done in Utrecht.

  • As a Bachelor’s student you have to request this approval with this form. Please send the completed form to examencommissie.geo@uu.nl 
  • As a Master’s student you have to request this approval by means of an e-mail to boardofexaminers.geo@uu.nl. Please add your Study Plan, signed by your programme coordinator, and supporting documentation such as course descriptions. The Study Plan is the same as you have used for your application.

Deadline

  • Are you going abroad the first semester or a full year? You have to request for approval at the exam commission before 1 June.
  • Are you going abroad the second semester? Your deadline is 1 December.

Please hand in your list of marks, after you return, at International Office Geosciences (international.geo@uu.nl) and include course descriptions and explanation. The exam commission will convert your marks and decide how much credits you have earned with the course you have done.
