Studying and work placements abroad

Your department will help you choose a course or work placement abroad that ties in well with your study programme. You also need the approval of your department to obtain credits for your work placement or study period abroad.

Avans University of Applied Sciences has a number of exchange programmes and collaborative arrangements with universities of applied sciences abroad. Ask your department about the options.

You can also study at an educational institution abroad that does not have an exchange agreement with Avans. In that case you will need to make all the necessary arrangements yourself. You may also be charged a fee by this host institution to cover your study costs. Please bear in mind that you will not be eligible for an Erasmus+ grant if you choose to study in Europe as a free mover.
