Erasmus exchange students

Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences participates in the European Erasmus network . We highly value the diversity and new insight that exchange students bring to our university and welcome you as an exchange student!


The Erasmus Programme (European Region Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students), is a European Union (EU) student exchange programme and is meant to encourage cooperation among the higher education institutions of Europe. Nuffic is the Netherlands' national agency for the Erasmus programme. Read more about our participation in the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020.


This webpage has been designed for exchange students from our Erasmus Partner Universities, to provide information regarding the learning opportunities that Van Hall Larenstein has to offer. The modules that are listed in the guide are open to students from all of our Erasmus Partner Universities. In principle, any additional course offered as the result of a specific departmental agreement is only open to students linked to that department. Erasmus Exchange is possible in our Bachelor programmes and our courses are offered in the English language.


For specific information you can download the complete guide, our policy statement, or read more information about our participation in the European Erasmus network (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020).
