Virtual Exchange: online courses for credits!

28 November 2019

Learn about Space Exploration and Rocket Science at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, or get to know more about the design of modern communication systems at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Follow a course via the Virtual Exchange programme and earn credits abroad without going abroad!

Virtual Exchange
Online education offers you the opportunity to go on a virtual exchange: you can participate in courses at partner universities across the world. This allows you to expand your horizon without the need to travel! You can take online courses as part of an honours track, or for elective or extra-curricular credits.


Online education is flexible: a lot of material is available 24/7 so you can follow the course whenever you want, and you can follow the course remotely. You can also develop digital and intercultural communication skills, and you get the chance to build your own (international) network.

Range of courses

Currently you can choose from more than 20 courses at universities from all over the world. New ones will be added throughout the course of the year.

  • Universiteit Wageningen
  • Université catholique de Louvain
  • École Polytchnique Fédérale de Lausanne
  • Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
  • Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
  • Sorbonne Université
