    ***

    Let's get started

    You will find all the information that you need on this page if you’re interested in going on an exchange as a Business Economics, TEW, Handelsingenieur, International Business or Business & Technology student.

    1. General exchange procedure
    2. General faculty information session
    3. Recording info session

    When?

    You can go on an exchange for one semester or, preferably, one academic year in your 3rd bachelor's year and/or your 1st master's year.

    Who?

    In principle, you need to:

    • have obtained an average of 12/20 (60%) in the year(s) before your application and in the first semester of current academic year
    • have no failed courses or courses to which you were absent before leaving

    The average of 12/20 (60%) is calculated as follows: 50% results of previous academic year(s), 50% results of current semester.
    In short: doing well in the current semester can vastly improve your average.

    You can submit your nomination dossier if you have failed courses after the January exam session.
    Keep in mind that in this case you can only receive the final permission to leave after the second exam session in August/September.
