Studying abroad

If you choose to study abroad, you need approval of the Board of Examiners for the courses you wish to take. If approved, the credits can count either as optional course package or as free choice. 

Free courses

You can choose:

  • courses within your major (e.g. from another specialisation package)
  • courses outside your major:
  • an orientation course for an educational programme (with which you can eventually enter the education system)
  • courses provided by another educational institution:
    Note that other institutions sometimes have different enrolment and teaching periods. For courses (or a minor) outside the UU, you always have to ask for approval from the Board of Examiners in advance.
  • courses that you may need to be admitted to a master's programme
    Be sure to enquire early on about the entrance requirements for the Master’s programme you wish to enter, so that you can fulfil the admission requirements (for example, a certain Minor or individual subjects).

You also might want to consider learning a new language. It gives you access to primary and secondary sources that you did not have access to before. For example, in addition to the common (school) languages: Italian, Modern or Ancient Greek, Latin, Arabic or Turkish.
