Study Abroad Study Plan - Social and Behavioral Sciences

Would you like to lend color to your Bachelor’s degree? Why not opt for studying a semester abroad! The School of Social and Behavioral Sciences thinks it is important that all students are given this unique opportunity during their studies. Below you will find more information on how you can incorporate a Study Abroad experience in your program.

Abroad during your Bachelor without study delay

Most students opt for a Study Abroad experience in the Bachelor phase. To enable you to be away for one semester without incurring study delay, the academic directors of all Bachelor’s programs have prepared one or two External Semester Scheduling Arrangements. These arrangements enable you to complete your Bachelor’s program, including a Study Abroad experience, on time!

Please note that these arrangements are meant for students who have completed, or have almost completed, their first-year courses. In your timetable, you cannot indicate that you are making use of this arrangement, so please make sure you know when to take a particular course. In some cases, you will have to take third-year courses in your second year!

We offer the following arrangements to students who started their studies in the academic year:


Study delay and still abroad during your Bachelor

Do you know that you will experience delay during your Bachelor because you are active in the board of, for example, a student association? Or because you have a busy job, are taking two programs at the same time, or need to take things easy? Even then, you can still spend a semester studying abroad. In that case, make an individual planning, with or without the help of the education coordinator.

Depending on your situation, there may be a possibility to take your minor courses, your compulsory optional course, and/or a number of compulsory courses abroad.

In order to plan your studies effectively, we suggest you create a study plan in which you move around the courses you still need to do until you have completed your Bachelor’s program, keeping one semester free for your trip abroad. If you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact the education coordinator!
