The first semester of your third bachelor year is kept free of compulsory courses to offer you the possibility to study abroad. Studying at a university in an English-speaking country not only improves your language skills, it will also deepen your knowledge of English literature, of the culture of your country of residence, and of yourself.
The VU has exchange contracts with a range of universities in English-speaking countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, the United States, and Australia. Would you like to spend a semester at University College London, or do you prefer the University of Limerick in Ireland? Perhaps you would like to immerse yourself in American culture at the City College of New York or study on Emory University‘s leafy campus in Atlanta? For these and many other possibilities, take a look at the map of VU Exchange possibilities.
