Acceptance of study programme during exchange

On arrival, changes to the study programme can be made but need to be accepted by the Departmental Coordinator and the Curriculum Committee again. More information.

Where can you go on exchange ?

The exchange of students with other countries is regulated by bilateral agreements (Europe) and cooperation agreements (outside of Europe) with international universities.

For destinations in Europe, students can only choose an institution on the list of agreements made up for their education programme. It is not possible to choose a destination in Europe which is not intended for your study programme.

For destinations outside of Europe, students from the education programme for which the cooperation agreement is intended, have priority for these places. Only when there are vacant places, your education programme is taught there and your education programme committee agrees on this exchange, you can apply for these destinations (see list below).
