Study abroad

Part of the programme may be completed abroad, in consultation with the tutor and the Programme Coordinator. Contact your tutor early if this is anticipated.

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. Consult the website of the International Office Geesteswetenschappen with regard to studies within the European Union, and the website of International Office UU study stays elsewhere.


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.
