Department and subject-linked exchanges

Many of our departments have their own exchange agreements, which are administered in different ways. Department and subject-linked exchange programmes are always tied to studies at a certain department or within a certain subject area. See what department you belong to so you can turn to them for information about whether they have places you can apply for.

Here you can find links to information about study abroad administered by departments and faculties.
