Negative travel advice? Check your destination

You may not go on exchange in a country for which negative travel advice has been issued. Check here if your destination is safe. This webpage is in Dutch, but by entering the country name (Dutch spelling) you can view the safety status on a map. If your destination is red or orange, you may not go there.

Tips for choosing a destination

Be flexible

There are limited places available on exchange programmes, which means there is no guarantee you can go to your preferred destination. Remember that there are lots of great places to study abroad. We recommend that you don’t restrict your options by setting strict criteria.

What to take into account

  • The courses you want to follow: are they open to exchange students?
  • The language spoken and any language requirements: do you speak the language well enough? Or could you attain the required level by following a language course?
  • Cost of living: this can differ greatly from destination to destination, even within the same country. Do you have sufficient funds?
  • Special requirements due to disability or illness: can your destination meet your requirements? Also take a look at the Health and Safety page.
  • The atmosphere, culture and environment: do you prefer small scale or large scale, something completely different or something more familiar?
  • Equal treatment of all gender identities and sexual orientations: what is the situation in your destination? Take a look on ILGA.org.

For university-wide destinations, you can find the answers to many of these questions in the factsheets on the Blackboard page Study Abroad Outside of Europe. To access this information, log in, then click on 'enrol' in the left-hand menu.
