Step 4. During your exchange

Don’t forget the following while you’re abroad:

  • Inform your Board of Examiners on time if the courses you are taking differ from the courses that have been initially approved. Each faculty has its own approval procedure. More information on this can be found on your own degree programme page.

  • Make sure you organise everything for your visa and your registration(s) as soon as you arrive in your foreign country. In some countries, you must register with the university a few days after your arrival.

  • Towards the end of your exchange, make preparations for your return to Utrecht University. Think, for example, of enrolment deadlines for courses in the upcoming semester and the deadlines for Erasmus forms (such as the Certificate of Attendance that must be completed by the coordinator of your host university).
