How and when to apply?

In order to apply for exchange, you will need to include the following documents in your application:

Your UCU study abroad study plan needs to be approved by your tutor. First draft a concept plan, and then discuss with your tutor whether it is feasible. After your plan has been discussed and approved by your tutor, you have to submit the UCU Study Abroad plan through this online form and also complete the application process in Osiris. The application instructions can be found here


In the past we have been able to place all students with our own partner universities and on their first preference. However, we cannot guarantee this in the future. 

When to apply

You can start collecting/preparing the necessary documents from now on and submit the required documents through the online form and complete the Osiris application by April 8th! Plan your appointment with your tutor before that date to ensure a timely application. 


In case of cancellation, contact the UCU International Office

If you cancel before the 1 April 2021 (exchange in Fall 2021) or 1 September 2021 (exchange in Spring 2022), there are no costs involved. After that, the cancellation fee is €200. Your stay at University College Utrecht will then depend on the availability of a room. If you decide to re-apply for exchange in an alternative semester, your placement depends on the availability of spots.
