Please note: Given the situation regarding the coronavirus, it is not sure yet what will happen with the exchanges in the second semester of 2020-2021, and after that. 

You can find the most recent information on the general coronavirus webpage.

For frequently asked questions, please go to the Travel & Exchange page.

The information below refers to our regular procedures and information sessions. This page will be updated after the summer. Given the restrictions regarding the coronavirus, the information sessions will likely take place in an alternative form.

You may use some or all of your optional course profile credits to complete some study abroad. Subject to certain conditions, you 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.


The International Office offers you all the help you need during the preparations for your exchange. 

  1. Take a look at the information regarding the preparations for your application.
  2. Read the information under the heading 'Conditions and Study Plan' in the menu on the left of this page.
  3. Read the general information about studying abroad.

Depending on your destination, you will be further guided through the process by either the Faculty International Office or the Universitywide International Office.
