Increase your international exposure by completing electives at a partner school

The optional Study Abroad programme allows you to increase your international exposure and build your network by taking advantage of specialised electives at one of our partner schools. You can choose to learn from their expert faculty in the classroom or join one of their international tours to experience learning on a different world stage.

The study abroad programme broadens not only your international exposure, but also the range of specialised electives you can take. You can take up to half of your electives (12 ECTS) at one of our partner schools.
