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.
