Exchange students

Visiting Utrecht as part of an exchange programme has many advantages: organizational details are taken care off, there are opportunities for funding (scholarships), and, most importantly, you do not need to pay tuition fees at the host university.

Visiting non exchange students

Visiting and taking courses at Utrecht University outside of an exchange programme (as a visiting non exchange student) is also possible.
