Areas of study open to exchange students

Economic and Social History

Students have to take 2/3 of their courses in the subject of the agreement at the 'School of Social and Political Sciences'. However, students can request to take courses from  other schools in the university - normally at levels 1 and 2. Note that some departments will not permit students from other departments to take courses. Entry to other courses will depend on the student's academic background, availability of courses and permission from the coordinator of that department. Check well if the courses are open for Erasmus students.



Students can take History courses at the Department of History. Also, students can take a maximum of 20 credits per semester at other departments within the university. Note that some departments will not permit students from other departments to take courses, therefore students have to make sure that they have permission from the coordinator of the department they want to take courses at. Check well if the courses are open for Erasmus students.
