Why study abroad?
Living and studying abroad can be a very rewarding experience. It is an incredible opportunity to meet other like-minded students in your program. Also, it enables you to look at yourself, your world, and your studies from a different perspective. You are able to gain invaluable life skills and change and grow as a person. Moreover, study abroad sets you ahead of your peers in terms of your current and future position in our globalizing world.
Most of the Science and Technology programmes offer opportunities to add an international dimension to your curriculum.
When to start planning?
It may take 6 to 12 months to make all the necessary arrangements to study abroad. Start early!
The study programme should be arranged in close consultation with the study advisor, one of the university teachers, the graduation professor and/or the mobility coordinator.
You should receive the approval of the board of examiners before departure!
