Make a top 3 of universities you are interested in to go on study exchange.
Note: the amount of places available differs per university, per study field and per year. As you are often not the only student applying for an exchange, we do advise you to have two additional alternative choices.
You can use the opportunity to go abroad to do your optional courses in a different field of study or to get more specialized in your own field. Some universities offer minors or semester packages, but mostly you will have to select courses yourself and find out if you fulfill the requirements.
Look up on the partner university website which courses will be available to exchange students in the semester you are applying for and make a list of the courses you are interested in. If the courses of your exchange semester have not been published by the host university yet, please look at the courses offered during the previous year.
Please make sure to check the language of instruction of your selected courses to see if they match with your language skills.
Schedules can change, courses may be full or cancelled and many students change their mind after arrival. Therefore, make sure the partner university you are interested in has enough courses on offer for you.
Here you can find an overview of courses that students have followed within their exchange programme. This is to give you an idea.
Contact study advisor or/and
- If you have not contacted your exchange coordionator yet, it could be wise to send him/her an e-mail to discuss your plans and check if your plans are feasible. Please attach to your e-mail the application form with the provisional selection of courses and a copy of your transcript of records. If necessary an appointment can be scheduled.
