Studying abroad

UM students, graduates and PhD students may choose to go abroad for some time: to study, for an internship or for a research position. For some programmes, time abroad is a mandatory part of the degree.

Start your preparations on time

If you plan to go abroad, you should plan your travel and stay well in advance. Start about a year before departure, especially if you are doing this outside the exchange programme of your faculty.

This may seem like a long time, but it will help avoid unpleasant surprises. There is a lot to take care of: you need permission from your faculty, you may need to apply for scholarships and you may need to take an admissions test.
