Selection criteria

When reviewing the applications, Student Affairs and Programmes chooses the best qualified applicants based on grade point averages in particular and on the applicant's motivation for studying abroad as described in the motivational letter. For MSc students, both grades from the BSc programme and the MSc programme are considered in the review process.


If nominated by Student Affairs and Programmes, you proceed to apply to the host university. You will be informed about the process. Note that you are not guaranteed a place until you receive an acceptance letter from the host university.

It is not possible to change your destination after you have been nominated for exchange. 

See Practicalities - before for further information on how to plan your study abroad.
