You can submit your application to study abroad at a partner university for the 2020-2021 academic year from mid-October 2019. This should be done via OSIRIS using the ‘Study Abroad’ button and apply to first, second semester or full year. You will have to choose three partner universities, as your first choice cannot always be guaranteed. You can contact your Study Advisor if you want advise about your choice, your study plan, or if you are not sure your exchange will fit in your planning.
The conditions you have to meet if you want to apply are the following:
- You are enrolled as a full time student at Utrecht University.
- You have earned at least 60 credits.
- You have to finish your programme in no more than four years.
With your application, you must enclose the following documents:
- Study Plan (your Study Advisor will check if you are able to finish your programme in no more than four years)
- Motivation letter
Deadline: 1 December
The application deadline is 1 December 2019 at 12:00 CET. If you miss the deadline, it may still be possible to arrange an exchange, but the most popular destinations will be full. More information on the secondary options (restplaatsen) will be posted here around February. Information on the universitywide partners can be found on the ‘Study abroad’ pages on the general student website.
Before you apply you will need to make an estimation of the expenses. Consider the costs for housing, insurance, travel expenses, and the cost of living in the country. Keep in mind that even within a country, the costs can vary between different destinations.
Please be aware of the language of instruction at the University of your choice. In some European countries the language of instruction is in Spanish, Italian or German and you need to have B2 level of that specific language. Make a plan how to obtain this level if you do not yet have that proficiency.
