students going abroad; outgoing students; outward-bound students; graduating students

In the context of student exchanges, uitstroom refers to the institution's own students who go abroad, and instroom refers to the foreign students coming in. The terms uitstroom and instroom are also used in a more general context to refer to the points in time at which pupils or students start and finish a programme of study. In this case, uitstroom can refer to the group of students who are graduating.
