In the first semester of your second year 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 abroad at other universities in Europe or the US, at other Dutch universities that offer specialised research seminars in their field, or where relevant, by taking part in programmes offered by the Dutch national research institutes.
Depending on the degree programme, you may take courses, undertake a research project or go on an internship abroad, resulting in a total of 30 EC to take back to Utrecht.
You should be aware that an application for studying abroad is a complicated and time-consuming process and that you should start the process on time. For more practical information, also on how to start your preparations, see the Abroad Guide (pdf) made by RMA students.
