Each year, the UvA organises a large-scale information event about studying abroad. Discover all aspects of studying abroad.



  • Learn from former exchange students about their experiences, and meet exchange students currently studying at the UvA.
  • Visit AIESEC for more information about internships and voluntary work abroad.
  • Discover what kind of activities the International Student Network (ISN) offers and about their buddy programme, where Dutch students are teamed up with international students.

Information sessions

Attend one or more sessions and discuss your options for studying abroad with experts:

Erasmus Programme / Faculty Exchange

Destinations in Europe are offered in the European exchange programme Erasmus+. The opportunities, conditions and application procedures differ per faculty, college or school. Attend one of the specific faculty information sessions about the Erasmus+ programme for information on how to take part.

Global Exchange Programme

Destinations outside of Europe are offered in the Global Exchange Programme. To which universities can you go and how can you find out the differences? This information session offers clear instruments to make a deliberate choice for one of the universities offered in the Global Exchange Programme.

Short Term Mobility Abroad

If you do not want to study abroad for a semester or a year, a short term programme of a few days or several weeks may be a solution. You could enrich your resume by participating in an international student conference, brush up your language skills through a language programme, or follow an academic programme through a summer school.

Study Abroad: Scholarships and Funding

As you know, studying abroad costs money, usually more than studying in the Netherlands. This information session will give you a clear picture of all the costs of your stay abroad. And will help you gain insight in the practical opportunities for you to finance your stay.

Internships or Research abroad

An internship abroad is something you have to organise yourself. It requires preparation and initiative on your part. Usually, an internship is an addition to your study programme. This session will inform you about a number of tools to organise your internship abroad.

Full Master Abroad

Is doing a full Master abroad one of your dreams? Or perhaps you would to do research at a foreign university or institute? During this session, we will help you with orientating on your opportunities, with making a choice and with the practical preparations.
