Read about student experiences
Autumn term: Approximately mid September – mid December
Spring term: Approximately mid January – mid April
Summer term: Not applicable for exchange
Language requirement: a minimum language level of B1 (CEFR) in English is required.
The International Office (UU Humanities) recommends a B2 level at the moment of exchange in order to fully participate in the courses.
Bachelor students: Students are allowed to take courses within the faculty of 'Humanities and Arts'. It is therefore possible to take courses in Archeology, English Studies, French Studies, German Studies, History, History of Art, Italian Studies, Literature, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Religion. Film and Drama modules are possible but space is very limited so students should apply as early as possible in order to get a spot.
Also, bachelor students can choose a maximum of 25% of their courses outside the faculty of 'Humanities and Arts', if space is available and the School concerned approves it. Law and Psychology courses are not open for students coming on this agreement. For some subjects, students must have prior study in the subject or in specific core topics in order to be considered for the subject or key modules, e.g. Economics, KBS, sciences.
Master students: only courses at the MA School of Comparative literature are available. Please note that prerequisite knowledge in this subject area is required in order to be accepted as an exchange student.
Yes: MA School of Comparative literature only.
Campus accommodation is available for the full year or for one/two terms only.
Normal study load per semester: 30 ECTS (20 ECTS per term).
Bachelor: 3 places per year.
Master: 2 places per year.
