Dutch Scientific Institutes Abroad

The Dutch Scientific Institutes Abroad (NWIBs) are educational and research centres mostly located around the Mediterranean. The institutes are all very different in nature, scale and history, which translates as each harbouring a different approach to student services. Some institutes offer bachelor or masters courses. Other institutes offer summer courses or work experience places with no formal educational framework.

Students of Islam Studies can follow a minor in Cairo or Rabat for the third period of their second year. It is also possible for all PTRS students to do individual summer courses and internships.

If you attend one of these institutes you will remain registered in Nijmegen and not be liable for the tuition fees at the partner institute. If you meet the requirements, you can apply for an Individual Travel Grant to cover other costs.
