The Exchange Programme in Physical Education and Movement Sciences offers a unique combination of theoretical courses (i.e. basic and applied sport & movement sciences) and practical courses (i.e. sports). In addition to these courses, exchange students can also apply for a (research) internship.


Students are advised to compose a curriculum with about 30 ECTS-credits per semester. Half of the courses should be selected from the Exchange Programme in Physical Education and Movement Sciences. In view of this recommendation, we encourage students to combine theoretical courses with sports practice.
