Safety

The UT does not provide financial support for study/internship in areas or countries considered unsafe (in Dutch: ‘onveilig’) by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. International Office reserves the right to deny your TMF application based on additional safety information. For detailed information (in Dutch) about the safety of countries worldwide, please visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website (link below). Keep in mind that a study/internship abroad is always considered a non-essential trip.

Application procedure

All mobilities abroad are automatically checked for scholarship opportunities when registered in Mobility-Online.

After registering your mobility in Mobility-Online, your faculty will check and approve the mobility. After the mobility has been approved, you are required to fill in the Scholarship Questions. The answers to these questions can be considered your application: based on the answers, a scholarship can be awarded.

To be eligible for TMF, your mobility must be registered and approved at least 2 weeks before departure! 

During and after your mobility

After your TMF-scholarship has been awarded, you will receive the full scholarship amount (€ 500,-) before departure.

Any changes to your mobility (e.g. changes in courses, duration, research proposal, etc.) can be registered in Mobility-Online in the 'during the mobility' section. There are no other steps to take during your stay abroad.

At the end of your mobility, you can download a Certificate of Attendance in Mobility-Online. This form contains information on the nature of your studies/assignment. It needs to be completed, signed and (if possible) stamped by your supervisor at the host organization and uploaded within 4 weeks after the end of your mobility. After your Certificate of Attendance has been uploaded, your scholarship application is completed.
