Free mover exchange

It may be possible to come to Groningen as a free mover.

Bachelor's and Master's students who are interested in an exchange period in Groningen, but whose home university does not have a mobility agreement with the Faculty of Philosophy can apply as “free mover”. Depending on the intended study programme, the faculty may or may not be able to host you.

Students applying as a free mover should be in the second year of their Philosophy studies at the moment of applying.
The following documents should be submitted when first contacting us:

  • Proof of sufficient knowledge of English (B2 for bachelor, C1 for master)
  • CV and motivation letter
  • Transcript of records
  • Official approval of the home university to apply as a free mover
  • Copy of bachelor degree certificate (if applying for master courses)

A maximum of two free mover students per semester can be accepted. Application deadlines are 15 March (autumn semester) and 15 October (spring semester).
