Areas of study open to exchange students

Students can take courses at the Department of Legal, Language, Interpretation and Translation Studies. Courses can then be taken in Communication, Dutch Language and Culture, English Studies, French Studies, German Studies, and Italian Studies. However, it is possible to attend a maximum of 40 percent of your courses at other departments, like Literature, Economy, Political Sciences, and Legal Science. The teachers of these courses must be asked to agree with the fact that Erasmus students attend their classes, but usually this is no problem.
