Step 4. During your exchange

During your exchange

Do not forget the following matters when you are abroad:

  • If the final courses that you will follow differ from your proposed study plan, inform your Board of Examiners in time in order to get the courses recognized upon your return. Each faculty has its own procedure for this purpose. More information can be found at the website of your study programme.
  • Make sure that you deal with all necessary arrangements regarding visa requirements and enrolment at the host university as soon as possible after you arrive. In some countries, you need to register with the university within a few days of arriving.
  • At the end of your stay you may need to make certain preparations for your return to Utrecht University. For instance, you may need to register for classes for the next semester before a certain deadline or have your Erasmus forms (such as the Statement of Host Institution) filled out by the coordinator of your host university.
