In semester I of year two you take research seminars and/or tutorials at advanced level. You are strongly advised to complete a substantial part of your coursework in your second year outside the Faculty of Humanities. For instance, you can go to other universities in Europe or the US within the Study Abroad programme (more information below).
The Graduate Gender Programme has partnerships with other Dutch universities that offer specialised research seminars in their field. Or, where relevant, you can take part in programmes offered by the Dutch national research institutes such as the Netherlands Research School for Gender Studies (NOG), the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Analysis (NICA), or the Netherlands Research School for Literary Studies (OSL).
Besides the general possibilities offered by the Faculty and University, you may also take advantage of exchange programmes with various Universities for Gender Studies, including:
- Humbolt-Universitaet zu Berlin, Berlijn, Duitsland
- Lund University, Sweden
- Linköping University, Sweden
- University of York, UK
The list Other Programmes (see below) will inform you about several programmes concerning Gender studies. Since these programmes do not have a regular exchange programme please contact the coordinator of your programme for more information.
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.
