Duration/cancellation of term abroad?

Duration/cancellation of term abroad?

An exchange takes place during a semester, a trimester or on a quarterly basis, usually from late August to late December. However, academic calendars at international partner schools vary according to their location, for example in Australia, India, New Zealand, Latin America, UK, Germany or Austria, see the orientation page on this website and look at the PdF file  'Partner Schools MSc'. 

If an unforeseen situation (natural disaster, unstable political environment etc.) occurs in your host country shortly after the selection, the International Office will do its utmost to find you another exchange destination. In case such situation reaches us just prior to the start of the programme abroad, there is not much the International Office can do anymore. In that case you are advised to choose for core course of a different master programme to convert your free elective.

The Intenational Office can not be hold responsible for any financial consequences in case the exchange needs to be cancelled for reasons above.

If you cancel the exchange yourself, an administration fee of 250 euro is being charged, unless there are good demonstrable reasons for which you need to cancel the exchange (for example illness). The administration fee is based on the time consuming process the exchange takes at both the home and host university.
