Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen, works closely together with several partners on a regional, national and international level. These partners can be partner universities for exchange programmes or other educational partnerships such as Study Counsellors and Representatives Abroad that help inform students from abroad about our different study programmes as well as student life in Groningen, but also research partners with whom we carry out research and set up projects to acquire knowledge.
International ties with partner universities enrich our academic culture by means of gaining knowledge and a broader view. In addition, these contacts provide excellent opportunities for students and staff to widen their horizons. With the relationships we have developed with other universities we can offer student exchange programmes, where students get the chance to study abroad at a partner university. Some schools also have double degree or articulation programmes with partner institutes where students get the chance to do part of their programme at Hanze UAS and part of their programme at a partner institute. A double degree programme gives students the chance to obtain a degree from both universities.
Often our staff also engage in an exchange programme where they teach at one of our partner universities. In return, lecturers of our partner universites also come and teach with us.
If you are interested in engaging in an exchange programme with Hanze UAS, please contact your own university. It is only possible to study at Hanze UAS as an exchange student if your own university has signed an exchange agreement with us.
