Whether you want to go abroad for a week, a quartile or half a year, there is an option for you to have an exciting mobility experience! Most stages of your studies offer opportunities to go abroad. Mobility options can be separated into three main categories:
Besides these mobility options within your curriculum, there are also other options beyond your curriculum, such as Study Tours and Summer Schools.
Start planning one year ahead
Keep in mind that you need to plan well ahead of the start of your mobility. Our advice for you is to start thinking about a protentional study abroad at least one year prior to your intended departure. You can contact your Study Adviser, Track Coordinator and/or Faculty Exchange/ Internship Coordinator when you want to discuss your plans.
We are committed to supporting well-being of UT students and staff, also when they are posted abroad. The Calamity Service-Abroad is the first port of call in case of a calamity outside of the Netherlands involving UT student(s) posted on an assignment, study abroad experience, or project. The service actively monitors worldwide events, performs well-being checks and follows the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs' advisory notices, WHO, RIVM, ECDC, CDC, GDACS, ERCC and NHC news alerts and private alert portals. The service provides students with pre-departure information as well as, one-on-one sessions with health and safety advice prior, during and after their study abroad experience. The service liaises between faculties and students, and is a partner of the central crisis team.
