Courses for exchange and visiting students
Utrecht University offers over 200 courses in English that are open to exchange students. Some of which are also open to visiting students. Each year students from all over the world come to Utrecht to experience Dutch culture and society, and the high level of academic offerings. If you are interested in joining their ranks, you can find more information on these pages.
Utrecht University makes a distinction between exchange students and visiting students:
- Exchange students can study at Utrecht University through an exchange agreement (Erasmus, bilateral) for one or two semesters.
- Visiting students, or free movers, can study at Utrecht University on an individual basis for one semester or a year as part of a degree at their home university. It is up to each individual faculty if their courses are open to Visiting students. As there is no agreement between the universities, the student may need to pay a fee; this is determined by the faculty.
