Eureca double degree program
‘To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life’
That is the mission of Wageningen UR (University & Research centre). A staff of 6,500 and 10,000 students from over 100 countries work everywhere around the world in the domain of healthy food and living environment for governments and the business community-at-large.
For the ninth consecutive year, Wageningen University has been announced the 'Best University of The Netherlands', by the study choice guide Keuzegids. 'This institution offers, in all its study programmes, the most interesting courses, the most intensive study support and prime facilities',
The domain of Wageningen UR consists of three related core areas:
- Food and food production
- Living environment
- Health, lifestyle and livelihood
"An interesting option for exchange students is to take a minor. A minor is a coherent set of courses within one field of study. It can be a good way to get more knowledge in a new area of study or to broaden existing knowledge in that specific field.
Minors are optional for 3rd year BSc students from Wageningen University but they are very suitable as well for exchange students, both BSc and MSc. A minor is scheduled during period 1, 2 and 3 (1st semester) or 4, 5 and 6 (2nd semester).

Letter from BSS Study Abroad sufficient.
You should have completed 120 ECTS.
Please be aware that, as a general rule, students at Science and Technology must have an average mark of at least 7 in order to be eligible for an exchange with one of our partner institutions. The evaluation of applications for student exchange at Science and Technology is based on an overall evaluation of the student's academic qualifications, and in some cases, students may be awarded an exchange placement even though their average mark is less then 7.
Your board of studies determines the number of courses you must take at your host institution to get 30 ECTS credits. It is therefore a good idea to check the study board's guidelines and conversion list between credits/units before starting the process of writing an application for preliminary approval.

Full-time course load according to host institution
Students can select two courses per period.
In period 3 and 4 one course of 6 credits or two courses of three credits. Two courses, 12 ECTS credits, per period may not seem very much, but this is a quite considerable workload of 42 hrs/week.
Every course has its own subject-code, e.g. ‘AEP 20306 Economics of Agribusiness’. The three letters in this code indicate the Chair group offering the course. The next part of the code indicates the level of the course. Digits 1 and 2 indicate introductory (bachelor) level and digit 3 and above a more advanced level. Courses with a first digit of 1 are sometimes offered in Dutch only. The last two digits indicate the number of ECTS credits.
The Academic Calender of Wageningen University consists of 6 periods. In period 1, 2 and 5 two subjects are taught, generally one in the morning and one in the afternoon. These periods consist of 6 weeks of teaching, followed by one week of self study and one week of exams. The third and fourth period are shorter, 3 weeks, and in these weeks one course is taught blockwise and fulltime. After each period you will have the exam of that course. The sixth period consists of 9 weeks, due to many national holidays in the spring
