Exchange study programmes

Exchange students can come to Hasselt University to follow programme components (take up credits), do complete internships or conduct research projects. An overview of possible programmes for exchange students can be found here. Please take note that the available courses might be subject to change. The final study guide will be updated by 30th June, for the academic year afterwards. Speak to your programme's internationalisation coordinator if you have any questions or if you would like more information.

In order to be eligible to follow programme components, there needs to be a bilateral agreement between Hasselt University and your home institution, and you should consult and adhere to academic calendars. You do not need a bilateral agreement if you are coming for an internship or research project, in this case you can speak to your programme's internationalisation coordinator.

In order to be able to apply as an exchange student, your home institution needs to submit your application to the international office. You will then receive an email with further instructions concerning your online pre-registration (go to diploma requirements for more information).

Please also consult the procedure below to define your study programme.

Procedure for study program

Required Minimum Programme

The following minimum study programme is a strict condition for admission as an exchange student.

Exchange students are requested to follow courses and to sit exams for a study programme with a minimum of 18 ECTS credits per semester.

Recommended Minimum Programme

Students who stay for a full academic year are strongly suggested to choose a study programme of at least 42 credits.

Students staying for one semester are strongly suggested to choose a study programme of at least 21 credits.

This recommended minimum implies about 16 class hours on average per week or a total work load of 37 hours on average per week. To Belgian standards this is only a modest study load and represents only 75% of the normal study load for a UHasselt student.

Constraints

When choosing a study programme from the different sets of courses available, exchange students should take into account several constraints:

  • Some subjects are incompatible, either because one subject is a prerequisite for another subject (e.g., it makes no sense to follow an introductory and an advanced course in Finance), or because both subjects (partially) cover the same content in the same semester. It is strongly suggested to read the course outlines carefully, in order to avoid such incompatibilities.
  • For different subjects, prerequisites apply. Careful reading of the prerequisites in the course outlines is strongly recommended. Further information, if requested, can be obtained from the Faculty Erasmus Coordinator .
  • When choosing subjects from different programmes, timetable clashes may occur. This implies that a choice must be made. One cannot be admitted to a subject for which he cannot attend classes.

Procedure for Choice of Study Programme

  1. Exchange students are requested to make a (provisional) choice of courses by means of the learning agreement in the on-line registration. Students are most strongly recommended to carefully read the course outlines and to check prerequisites and incompatibilities before making a choice.
    It is expected that prior consultation between the student and the student exchange coordinator at the home university will have identified the most suitable set of courses to be taken at UHasselt. This is to ensure that students choose a study programme which is an extension of their previous study and/or is equivalent to (a part of) the degree scheme taken at the home university.

    In any case the provisional choice of courses in the Learning Agreement must be signed for agreement by the student exchange coordinator at the home university. In doing so he/she certifies that at least part of the study programme at UHasselt will lead to credit transfer or another form of academic recognition by the home university.

  2. As soon as possible after reception of the application form, advice will be given on the size of the chosen programme (i.e., the study load implied) and on its suitability for the academic background of the exchange student. If courses are cancelled, students will be informed as soon as possible.

  3. Exchange students can adjust their study programme after their arrival, but it is strongly recommended to limit the number of changes to a minimum. 1 month after the start of the semester, students are requested to make a final decision on their study programme.

    After these dates students cannot add any subject to their study programme. This implies they will not be admitted to and cannot sit exams for subjects which are not indicated in their study programme.
  4. Students who stay for the full academic year should submit their (provisional) choice of study programme for the second semester as early as possible.

Class attendance

Class attendance is required and will be checked.

For all subjects, 'regular' class attendance is a condition for being admitted to the exam. The requirement of 'regular' attendance means that one must be present for at least 80% of the class time. It also means that the student must be present on campus for the full teaching period (trimester or semester) during which the course is running. Teachers have the right to exclude students form exams for that subject if they are not in classes 80% of the time.

'Working on another subject' never is an acceptable justification for absence from class. Only medical reasons and other circumstances beyond one's control are accepted.

Being physically present in class is not sufficient. In many subjects it is mandatory to come well prepared to class and to contribute actively to problem solving exercises, discussions, case analyses etc. In some cases active participation in class is an element of the course assessment.

As the study groups are formed within the first week after the orientation program, teachers normally don't accept students who arrive to UHasselt more than two weeks after the start of the program. Exceptions can be taken into consideration only in case of serious illnesses or in the event of death of a family member.

Evaluation and exams

Exams

Like Hasselt University students, exchange students are expected to take exams. The exam schedules are published four school weeks before the start of the exam period, and deviation from these dates is not possible. As exams can last until the last day of the semester, we advise exchange students not to plan their return trip until the exam schedule has been published.

Hasselt University grades exams on a scale from 0 to 20 per programme component. These grades should be interpreted as follows:

  • 0-9: unsatisfactory
  • 10-13: satisfactory
  • 14-15: good
  • 16-17: very good
  • 18 or above: excellent

How do Hasselt University grades convert to ECTS grades?

Transcript of records

At the end of an exchange programme, the home institution will receive a transcript of the student's records with the result obtained for each programme component, as well as the number of ECTS credits. Only the programme components mentioned in the definitive learning agreement will be shown on the transcript of records, as the student was only registered for those programme components.

The International Office gives all exchange students a warm welcome and provides them information and support before, during and after their exchange period at Hasselt University.
