Study abroad

You can use (part of) the Electives to study abroad. Under certain conditions you can take courses abroad instead of a minor.

Always request approval!

You must always request approval from the Board of Examiners for the courses you are going to take abroad.

Options for going abroad

If you want to spend some time abroad for your studies, you can study abroad via an exchange programme. You will stay enrolled at Utrecht University and pay your tuition fees here.

You can choose between 2 types of destinations: faculty destinations (where you can study within your own study area) and university-wide destinations (where you can study other study areas). We collaborate with universities around the world.

If you do not want to study abroad for a whole semester, you can also opt to participate in a summer school abroad.


The deadline for your application to study abroad is 1 December 2023.
