Studying abroad requires you to prepare well in advance. We recommend starting to orientate yourself about a year ahead of time.

The first steps to follow:

  • Check the requirements set by your programme in order to be allowed to go on exchange. See the linked documents below. 
  • Research the partner universities (of applied sciences) that interest you.
  • Attend all information sessions about studing abroad organized by your programme and/or by GO.
  • Read the study abroad guide of your programme thoroughly, see below. This document contains the exact requirements, deadlines and processes per programme 

The next steps would be the following:

  • Note that we have negotiated contracts with specific universities for specific programmes of which we know that the quality is up to par, these are your options for your study abroad. 
  • Once you know where you would like to go, you contact the country tutor for that specific university you are interested in. Country tutors are lecturers working for THUAS. They know the partner universities well and can advise you further (see a list below).
  • Make sure that the subjects you want to choose abroad are possible within your programme. Check that with your country tutor. As a general rule, you will not be able to repeat courses that are part of your Bachelor degree, and you should look to sign up for 30 to 35 ECTS per semester.
  • Be aware of the deadlines set by your programme.
