You may use some or all of your optional course profile credits to complete some study abroad. Subject to certain conditions, students who started in or after 2013 – 2014 may complete subjects abroad in lieu of a Humanities Minor.


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; you can take subjects abroad via an exchange programme, but other options also include a summer school.


Utrecht University collaborates with universities worldwide. The faculty has agreements in specific subject areas, as well as university agreements that are open to students of all faculties (unless otherwise specified). Under an exchange programme, you stay enrolled at UU and do not pay any tuition fees at the partner university.


First, read the information under 'Conditions and study plan' in the navigation menu on the left. Then visit the general student website on studying abroad. Here (under step 2) you can easily search among all available destinations. Your exchange will fall under the International Office of either the faculty or the university, depending on where you decide to go.
