How to apply for a semester abroad with the Study Abroad Office

  1. Read our brochure. It contains valuable information on our scholarship and exchange programmes, further opportunities to go abroad (freemover, programmes administrated by the International Office, etc.), organisational matters pertaining to your stay abroad, credit transfer and recognition, worksheets to help you gain claritiy about your priorities etc. Much of this can also be found on this website.

  2. Attend our (digital) info session. If you need further advice, feel free to make an appointment for our digital office hours.

  3. Read up on the different possible host universities and compile your list of priorities. Make sure to include more than just one or two universities as this increases your chance of snagging one of the English department's scholarships.

Check the Documents to be submitted section to see what you need to hand in as well as the Selection criteria to understand the basis of our review process. Note: You need only submit one application to our office for the ERASMUS+, overseas and ISAP programmes. You can list as many universities as you like from all three programmes in one data sheet, do not fill in the student data sheet several times!

  5. Wait while we review all applications.

  6. In case we can offer you a place: Let us know whether you accept it.

  7. In case we unfortunately cannot offer you a place: Wait if there is a second round of applications.
