I want to apply for the Science Exchange Programme but my university is no partner of Utrecht University.
You cannot apply as an exchange student if your university doesn't hold an agreement with Utrecht University. In this case, please apply as a ‘free mover’ visiting student. For more information, please contact the Science International Office desk.
How does the application process go?
If the exchange application is complete, relevant materials are sent to the department involved for evaluation. Once approved by the department, an e-mail of acceptance will be sent to the student directly or via the online application in Osiris. Any rejected application will be announced via e-mail to the respective parties (to the International Relations Office of the partner institution and to the student) upon the declaration of the department’s conclusion. Applicants are not considered as accepted until they have received their official e-mail of acceptance with their student number included.
I have not heard from you and am anxious to know my status.
The application process can take up to 6 weeks to get a final answer. Your application is subject to approval by the department involved.
