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.
Why Study abroad?
Studying abroad often gives an enormous boost to your academic and personal development. The faculty is therefore keen to support you in completing part of your studies abroad. The length and purpose of your stay may vary. For example:
- You can participate in a summer school abroad;
- You can take subjects abroad via an exchange programme.
Utrecht University collaborates with universities worldwide. The faculty has agreements in specific subject areas, while the university-wide agreements are open to students of all faculties (unless otherwise specified). During your exchange period, you stay enrolled at Utrecht University and do not have to pay tuition fees at the partner university.
