Areas of study open to exchange students

Students can take courses within the Faculty of Arts. Subjects taught here cover Communication, Dutch Language and Culture, German Studies, and Media. Students are also allowed to take 50 percent of their courses outside the department within the university. The departmental coordinator at MU has the final say in this matter and the percentage can therefore vary. There is no guarantee that the student will be accepted to the courses outside the faculty.

Languages: priority is given to students who participate in an NVT-stage. In case you would like to do a NVT-stage please contact Emmeline Besamusca, for additional information and before applying.
