Study 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.

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.

Information sessions

Each year the Faculty of Science organises one or several Study Abroad meetings. This session takes place in October during the Study Abroad weeks. Re-watch the Study Abroad Info Session of 2023-2024 here.
