Exchange students can only enroll in courses open to exchange students. The Faculty of Economics and Business offers courses on master and 2nd and 3rd year bachelor level to exchange students. Additionally, all exchange student can enroll in Dutch Studies courses at the Faculty of Arts. At their own expense, students can also take language courses at the Language Centre.
