Enhance your curriculum: study abroad for a semester. All of our 50 partner universities worldwide are of outstanding quality, and many of them have a Liberal Arts and Sciences profile.

As a student of University College Utrecht, you may apply to go on an exchange with our partner institution, or also may apply to go to Utrecht University destinations. There are over 100 places available at the University Colleg Utrecht partner universities each semester, so we would encourage you to opt for these so as to guarantee a smooth approval of your course requirements. If you apply for Utrecht University’s destinations, that are These open to application for all UU students,  the exchange is arranged through the UU International Office instead of the UCU International Office.

When going abroad as an exchange student, you will still be paying your tuition fee at UCU and not at the host university, while having the same benefits. You do not need to pay for the campus fees during your exchange and can use those funds to pay for housing at the host university.
