Understanding Your Semester Abroad

How Many ECTS is a Semester Abroad?

A semester abroad typically equates to around 30 ECTS credits, aligning with a full-time study load. Depending on the university and the courses you choose, you might have the opportunity to earn up to 35 ECTS credits. For students looking to catch up or get ahead, it's possible to undertake additional credits, ensuring flexibility in managing your academic progression.

How Much Time is a Semester Exchange?

Semester exchange programs generally span 4 to 6 months. The exact duration can vary by destination; for example, Australian universities' semesters run from February to June and July to November. Uniclub advisors are on hand to offer bespoke advice, ensuring your exchange aligns with your academic calendar and goals, so you won't miss important exams or well-deserved vacations.

Freemover vs. Exchange: What's the Difference?

  • Freemover Students enjoy considerable flexibility in course selection. This path suits students pursuing specialized or interdisciplinary studies, as it's not constrained by specific agreements between universities.
  • Exchange Students benefit from a streamlined process and often lower or waived tuition fees at the host institution, thanks to pre-arranged agreements. However, they may find course options more limited, as selections are predetermined to fit within the academic frameworks of the partnership.

  • The Netherlands: Dutch students can often transfer their existing study grants to cover their period of study abroad. Additionally, the "Uitwonende Beurs" (Living Away from Home Grant) may be available for students studying outside the Netherlands.
  • Germany: German students can benefit from "BAföG" (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz) for international studies, which provides partial grants and loans to cover tuition fees and living expenses.
