PPLE students have several possibilities to include a study abroad experience in their programme. This can be either a full semester exchange or a short term by attending a summer school abroad. PPLE students can choose from a variety of destinations, ranging from the University of Toronto to the University of Melbourne and from the National University of Singapore to Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina, as part of the Global Exchange programme of the UvA. PPLE is currently also attracting its own partners, mainly from Europe, so as to facilitate Erasmus exchange.
The application process is competitive, and students are selected based on motivation and grades.
