Program Description:

KU is a member of the Mid-America Universities International consortium, MAUI, which provides KU students with access to sites within a partner consortium in Europe called the Utrecht Network.  The network of schools and programs abroad enables KU students to study at sites throughout Europe during the fall or spring semesters as well as for an entire academic year. MAUI-Utrecht Network sites are total immersion programs; in most cases, students register as a regular student at the host institution, take the same courses, have the same assignments, and participate in the same activities as the local students. This means that a student applying for MAUI-Utrecht Network site must be more proactive and prepared to handle being in a location where they may be the only KU student in the program.

Language Considerations

Most sites offer language courses to improve your knowledge of the language spoken in that particular country, some sites offer all coursework in English, and some require advanced language proficiency in order to be accepted. The University of Missouri – St. Louis has maintained a list of courses offered in English at some of the Utrecht Network universities. This list is available here, and is updated as often as possible.  Additionally, the institution may list course information below.

Most requirements are listed on the institutional information above.  Additionally, some sites are more competitive than others and have less open spaces available.  Before applying, KU students should plan to meet with a program coordinator to review the site restrictions, eligibility and chances of placement to ensure the site is a good fit for them.

KU students who qualify for financial aid in the form of Stafford and/or other loans, Pell or SEOG Grants, and scholarships may apply the aid to the cost of a Study Abroad Program.
