Global Exchange Programme

On your way to an unforgettable experience

The Global Exchange Programme includes over 90 universities outside Europe. Students of all disciplines are eligible for these exchange programmes unless the host university applies certain restrictions.

The agreement between University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the host university specifies the entrance requirements, possible study areas, the duration of the exchange and the number of students who are to be exchanged.

UvA students are required to pay tuition to the University of Amsterdam and do not need to pay tuition to the host university.
