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.

Study abroad in five steps.

Study abroad

Utrecht University works together with other universities all over the world. Your faculty has agreements for a specific field of study, while the general university agreements are open to students from every faculty (unless otherwise stated). During an exchange, you stay registered at the UU and you do not pay tuition fees to the foreign university.

Do you want to know more and get started?

Go to Arranging your study abroad in 5 steps, to browse through partner universities (step 2). Depending on your destination, you will receive guidance from the International Office of your faculty or from Student Services (general university exchanges).

Find your destination on the overview of partner universities.

For questions about universitywide programmes you can get in contact with the University International Office.
