Study abroad

Study abroad

In some cases it is possible to go on exchange in the 2nd semester of your study programme. Due to deadlines and preparation time, this is only possible if you apply for an exchange in the last year of your Bachelor's programme or if you contact the International Office Humanities in May prior to the start of your studies at the latest. We can then look at which destinations are still available. You also need approval from your programme coordinator and the Board of Examiners.

Keep in mind that it may not be possible to go on exchange without any risk of delay in your studies. This is dependent on several factors, such as the destination you wish to go to and how you can schedule your courses.

Options for going abroad

If you want to spend some time abroad for your studies, you can take subjects abroad via an exchange programme. In that case, you stay enrolled at Utrecht University and pay your tuition fees here. You can choose between 2 types of destinations:

We collaborate with universities around the world. You can also opt to participate in a summer school abroad.


The deadline for your application to study abroad in 2023-2024 is 1 December 2022.
