Exchange programmes

Zuyd offers several interesting opportunities for international study exchange programmes, including the Erasmus+programme, the Magellan Exchange and bilateral exchange agreements with international partners.

For whom?

Exchange programmes are based on international agreements. In principle, only students of our partner universities can take part in these exchange programmes. The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) guarantees academic recognition of your studies abroad by providing a smooth way of measuring and comparing your learning achievements, and transferring these to your home institution.
