This article concerns all degree students regardless of whether they are studying in the new degree programmes or according to the old degree structures.
If you are going abroad without it being based on an exchange agreement, you are going abroad as a free mover or as a visiting student. Free movers and visiting students are responsible for paying for the host university's possible tuition fee themselves. You can apply for a small free mover grant from UH's International Exchange Services if you meet the grant criteria. The free mover grant does not cover all the expenses of your exchange.
On this page, you can find instructions regarding what students going abroad independently as free movers or visiting students need to take care of before going abroad. In addition to students going abroad independently, these instructions are also meant for students whose exchange is not based on an exchange programme coordinated by UH's International Exchange Services. Even if you don't apply for a free mover grant, you can get a certificate from the International Exchange Services about your study period abroad being a part of your degree. Instructions for that are available on this page.
