Exchange students

Welcome at the Faculty of Science

The Faculty of Science offers several English-taught bachelor courses and all master’s programmes are taught in English (except Pharmacy). The Faculty of Science also offers possibilities for research projects.

Doing courses

If you want to visit us to do courses a bilateral agreement between our institutions has to be in place. Check the information at your home university or contact your local international officer to see if exchange with Utrecht University is possible.

Please read the information sheet for exchange students and the practical information carefully and visit the FAQ’s page mentioned in the left column for any questions you might have.

Exchange to Science Utrecht University for academic year 2020-2021 has been cancelled due to Corona/Covid-19. 
Information is kept on this page for future reference, but exchange is during the above year NOT possible.

Doing research

You have to arrange a place at one of our research groups yourself. It is not possible at the Department of Information and Computing Science and there are limited options available at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences because of supervisor capacity. You should invest in a good CV, including your current educational level (BSc, MSc), and motivation letter before asking a researcher at one of our groups to become your supervisor. Please be specific and short in your e-mail request. What do you want to do and why, what are your skills and motivation and in what period do you want to come.
