What is the Global Exchange Programme?

The Global Exchange Programme includes over 90 universities outside Europe. Students of all disciplines are eligible for these exchange programmes unless your faculty or the host university applies certain restrictions.

The agreement between University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the host university specifies the entrance requirements, possible study areas, the duration of the exchange and the number of students who are to be exchanged per year.

Admission requirements

In order to apply for the global exchange programme, you have to meet the entry requirements for participating in an exchange programme as outlined on the UvA World MapExternal link and the Destinations page. It is important to know that you can only go on exchange to the same partner university once, and that UvA students are required to pay tuition to the University of Amsterdam and do not need to pay tuition to the host university.

Application

For exchanges in the academic year 2023-2024 there is one application procedure for all destinations. This makes it easy to apply. You can apply for up to five destinations per round where you would like to go. More information about the application procedure can be found on the application page.

Terms and conditions

If we can offer you an exchange opportunity, you must agree with the Terms and Conditions of the Global Exchange Programme (pdf).

Exchanges and COVID-19

Although the situation is currently still uncertain, we hope that the impact of COVID-19 will be minimal on exchanges taking place in 2022-2023. However, we cannot make any guarantees in this regard. We are currently continuing with the information sessions and applications for exchanges taking place in academic year 2023-2024.
