International prospective Exchange students

We recognise that these are highly unusual times and understand that you may have concerns and questions about your Exchange at Utrecht University. We are working hard to answer your questions and are committed to supporting you. This page offers information for students expecting to arrive in the Spring semester, per February 2022. More information for students planning their Exchange for the next academic year is not yet available.  

Decision Board of Examiners / Exchange Spring Semester 2022

From September onwards, we will be offering much of our education on campus.  
You will be able to travel to Utrecht to participate in the exchange programme provided that:

  • there are no travel restrictions installed by your national government for travelling to The Netherlands;
  • there are no border restrictions in place by the Dutch government for travelers from your country of residence;
  • your home university allows you to participate in the Exchange Programme.

Upon arrival in the Netherlands, you will be expected to adhere to any and all safety measures imposed by the Dutch government to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. 

Questions about vaccinations, health and quarantine upon arrival in The Netherlands

On the page about Health, safety and quarantine (for students) you will find information about whether you should go into quarantine after arriving in the Netherlands or how you can support someone in quarantine. You will also find information about the implementation of the coronavirus vaccination.

Frequently asked questions

We understand you might still have some questions. The situation is uncertain and it is hard to predict what the world will look like in a few months. For your benefit we have published a FAQ below. In case you have any remaining questions, please contact your exchange coordinator.
