Exchange programmes

More than a quarter of UM students spend a period abroad as part of their studies, which is a higher proportion than at any other university in the Netherlands. This is an excellent way for students to immerse themselves in other cultures and become more familiar with other languages. Time abroad will enable you to discover how your chosen field of study is regarded in other countries. You will also be exposed to different ways of thinking and living, giving you a fresh perspective on your own thinking and way of life. At UM, scholarships are available for students who wish to study abroad. These scholarships supplement the regular student grants and cover additional costs.
