Requirements to go on exchange

  • learning path: 1 elective failure is allowed without any further restrictions, 1 compulsory failure is allowed with the specific restriction that the student is NOT allowed to go abroad in the semester of the compulsory course that he/she needs to retake, 2 or more failures implies that the student is NOT allowed to go abroad and the mobility will be postponed
  • duration: 1 or 2 semesters, during the 2nd master

The coordinator ranks the applicants; in order to do so not only the examination results are taken into account, but also other criteria such as independence, motivation, etcetera. A priori no minimal study performance is set as a condition.

Contactpersons

Acceptance of study programme during exchange

During the preparation phase, the student compiles a study programme during exchange in Oasis in collaboration with the departmental coordinator, which needs to be approved by the Curriculum Committee. 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).
