The UvA offers students various options to study abroad for a semester or a whole year through an exchange programme, where students are exchanged with students of a partner university.
Short term
Is a semester or a year abroad too long? A short term programme of a few days or several weeks, like a language course or a summer school, may be a solution.
Internships & Research
An internship abroad is a unique way to bring your theoretical knowledge into practice, gain work experience, increase your network and your chances on the labour market.
Practical matters
