Study Abroad is part of you ‘profiling space (30EC)’ and is one of the options to choose. You can study at one of our partner universities as part of your third or fourth-year programme.

Each year in October/November the international officer will inform you on the possibilities in an information meeting. The powerpoint can be found here: Voorlichting Internationalisering 2019-2020. In this powerpoint you can read about options, procedures, criteria and deadlines.
