We welcome Colombian students!

We have over 4,000 international students on campus studying for a PhD, a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree or spending a semester here as exchange students.

In 2018 we had applications from 162 different countries. Since the nationality of our students is not registered in our systems we don’t know how many Colombian students we currently have. However, we do know that in 2018 we had 81 applicants from Colombia for our Master’s programmes.
