Exchange Students

Exchange students have a wide variety of courses to choose from at RU. More than 250 courses are offered in English. In order to apply, you must fill in the online application by the mentioned deadlines.

Bachelor’s Students

For Bachelor’s programmes, certain requirements need to be fulfilled. Information about the different programmes offered is available online, as is information about the admission process. Requirements vary on your programme. Find your programme to find out what your specific requirements are. There is only one (the International Economics and Business) Bachelor’s programme that’s taught in English.
