Erasmus documentation

If you do your exchange programme at the Faculty of Geosciences with an Erasmus Grant, the following documentation has to be signed by the International Office Geosciences: 

  • Learning Agreement;
  • Statement of Host Institution;
  • Arrival/Departure Certificate.

Your home university should provide you with these forms, which you need to complete, sign and hand in to the International Office Geosciences. The office will inform you by email when has itself signed the forms.

Study Guide and Examination Regulations

You’ll find your Study Guide on the site of the programme giving your course(s). You can use the programme finder below or the overview on the home page of the Faculty of Geosciences.

The Teaching and Examination Regulations set out the rights and obligations of students, on the one hand, and of Utrecht University, on the other — e.g., regarding exams and testing.

Reporting illness and absence

If you are unable to attend a test, lecture or tutorial due to illness or other circumstances beyond your control, please phone your course programme secretariat to inform it in advance. Once you return to your normal schedule, please let the secretariat know and provide it with certification justifying your absence (e.g., a doctor’s note or, in the event, a copy of a card announcing the death of a close one).
