If you want to go abroad while following the MBI program, there are two possibilities. You can go abroad as a student or as a visiting researcher.
Visit as a student
You can visit another university if it has a similar curriculum as MBI. Furthermore, if the university is part of an exchange program (contact our int. dept. about this, more information can be found through this link) you will not need to pay college tuition.
It does appear that deadlines for this close quickly, i.e., 1st of December for the next academic year. Please make sure you apply for your period abroad as soon as you join the MBI. An interesting Dutch flyer is used to explain parts of the process here.
Visit as a researcher
It is possible to go abroad as a researcher for a research project. The professors in the MBI have many contacts in different areas (from Japan to Paris, from California to Belgium). Please contact the professors about this individually, since each will have his or her own contacts in different regions. The advantage of being a visiting researcher is that the student in general does not have to pay tuition. A downside is that the student can not participate in any exchange student activities. Please note that sometimes grants are available for Dutch speaking students through Beursopener.
