Stay abroad

The research groups offering the AI programme collaborate with several universities worldwide. This provides opportunities for AI students to carry out part of their study programme (including the final thesis project) at foreign universities. Students have studied, for instance, at

  • University of Melbourne, Australia
  • Fraunhofer Institute Sankt Augustin, Germany
  • Helsinki University of Technology, Finland
  • University of Linköping, Sweden
  • Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies, Rome, Italy
  • University of Liverpool, UK
  • City University New York, USA
  • ETH Zurich, Switzerland
  • Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland. 

Moreover, we have an Erasmus exchange programme with the University Politehnica of Bucharest in Romania.

Stay abroad for a while? An excellent idea!

Staying abroad will bring you a lot in terms of new friends, expansion of your network, multi-lingualism and it looks good on your résumé. An exchange is usually for one semester (5 months), but can last for a full academic year at the longest.

Will you go abroad to follow courses or for a research project or internship?

If you want to go abroad to follow courses we call this ‘stay’. A bilateral agreement is needed between the university of your choice and Utrecht University or the Science faculty. If you want to do a research project or internship it is called ‘traineeship'.  For a traineeship a bilateral agreement is not necessary. Please note that the application procedures for stay and traineeship are different.
