In semester 1 of year 2 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.

Application

In any exchange agreement only a limited number of student places are available. Admission will occur on a competitive basis and the host university will take the final decision on admission. You should be aware that application for studying abroad is a complicated and time-consuming process and that you should start the process on time.

Abroad Guide

For more practical information, also on how to start your preparations, see the Abroad Guide (pdf) made by RMA students.

Grants

A number of grants are available at both Faculty and University level, and Utrecht University has a number of working agreements with universities and institutions abroad in and outside of Europe.

International Contacts

Utrecht musicologists actively participate in a range of international research networks and regularly present papers at international musicological conferences, while the Utrecht Colloquia in the Musicologies and short-term visiting professorships bring a steady stream of international visitors to Utrecht. These contacts offer excellent opportunities for students to prepare themselves for their semester abroad.
