In the past it was difficult to find courses that were running for only one semester. 18-19: a UU law student notified us that it is possible to go on an exchange to Warwick for one semester and follow courses. You will have to be prepared to follow any course that is available. You will be assisted by a tutor at Warwick.
Special Assessment methods are available for students who leave Warwick prior to the Summer Term or who do not complete a full academic year. Special Assessment methods can consist of written exams, the submission of individual essays, or other types of tests, where appropriate.
Number of places available: 3 students, max 10 months
We advise students to opt for a full year. Or if you want to go for 1 semester choose term 1. Students who want to stay for term 2 and 3 may have reduced module choices,
Students who would like to go for term 1 or term 1&2, please note that issuing your transcript might take until the end of term 3. This means you will not be able to graduate until June/July.
An exchange for 1 term is always on request and has to be approved by Warwick University.
However, Warwick University will always try to accommodate students from Utrecht University.
You can always discuss your options with the coordinator of Utrecht University
