Study abroad

Would you like to study abroad for a semester?

The University of Amsterdam actively takes part in international exchange programmes. These contacts provide many opportunities for studying abroad. Because the field of communication is very international, it is useful to go abroad during your studies. The study programme offers the possibility to spend one semester at a foreign university without a study delay. The Bachelor's programme has an international coordinator who can inform you about the possibilities.
